Teiid 7.2 Final Released

We are pleased to announce Teiid 7.2 with numerous features, improvements, and bug fixes. Here are some highlights:
  • SQL Support
    • Non-Recursive Common Table Expressions - The WITH clause (and associated pushdown) for non-recursive queries is now supported.
    • Explicit Table Syntax - TABLE x can now be used as a shortcut for SELECT * FROM x
  • JSON Support - JSON, which could be obtained through the ws-translator using http calls or other methods, can be converted to XML using the system function jsonToXml. XMLTABLE and other integration logic can then be used on the JSON results.
  • Transaction Statements - JDBC/ODBC now accepts START TRANSACTION, COMMIT, and ROLLBACK statements to control local transactions.
  • Procedure Result Caching - virtual procedure definitions may use a cache hint to cache results in the result set cache.
  • Improved Plan Caching - plans used by internal materialization and stored procedure plans will be automatically cached in the prepared plan cache. Improvements were also made to reduce the memory footprint of the plans.
  • Refined Load Balancing and Fail Over - clients can use use the statement "SET NEWINSTANCE TRUE" to allow their connection to select a new server instance. See the Client Developer's Guide for more information.
  • Simplified Role Usage - a role can now be assigned to any authenticated user via the any-authenticated attribute on the data-role element.
  • Materialized View Performance - materialized view tables will now automatically create and use non-unique secondary indexes for unique constraints and indexes defined on the view.
  • Binary Web Service Calls - the ws translator now provides an invokeHttp procedure to return the blob contents and string content type of an http/https call.
  • Improved clustering support - see the Admin Guide chapter on clustering.
  • IPv6 support - Teiid can started using IPv6 bind address and can be used with JDBC connection.
  • SESSION_ID - A new system function "SESSION_ID" is added to the system function library.
  • Assignment Syntax Improvements - Teiid's procedure syntax for assignments was clarified so that the assignment value must be a proper expression. INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE update counts must be obtained from VARIABLES.ROWCOUNT, scalar values must be obtained via a scalar subquery. The parser will continue to accept the old syntax and convert the query into the proper form.
  • TEXTAGG - SQL support for Text aggregation. Using this function expression values can be aggregated into a CSV BLOB with configurable delimiter, header, and encoding. The result can be optionally saved to a text file.
See the release notes for more details. Download today, give it try, and let us know what you think and what features you would want in upcoming releases.

  1. hi! congratulation for the new release!
    btw, i was still looking for the 7.1 release, but can't find it on sourceforge...? why, and where is it gone? is the "teiid designer 7.1" compatible with "teiid 7.2"?

    Thanks marco

  2. Marco,

    The 7.1 release was posted to the download site:

    At the time we were looking at making a switch over, but decided to stay at sourceforge. We'll add 7.1 to sourceforce to prevent confusion.

    Yes, designer 7.1 should be compatible with teiid 7.2. There should be a 7.2 designer shortly.


  3. really kind, perfect! :)

    do you suggest a newbie to try
    a) teiid 7.1 with designer 7.1
    b) teiid 7.2 with designer 7.1
    c) teiid 7.2 with designer 7.2, as soon as it will be released?


  4. Starting with Teiid 7.2 and Designer 7.1 should be good.

Authenticating datasources with LDAP or Kerberos in Amazon AWS

This blog is mainly to showcase one of the community success story with Teiid and Amazon AWS. The need for our community user Ben Kibler  was to provide data sources in AWS be participating in Kerberos authentication. Not only participating, he wanted to provide a consistent usage and access pattern, and a light weight integration layer  for these data sources. He choose Teiid embedded for this purpose, and provided an extension to hook Auth services back into their corporate Active Directory.  With that his applications can participate in kerberos auth with Teiid, and then same token will be delegated to underlying data sources in Amazon AWS. The rest was provided by Teiid. Read more about it and find the supporting code at We love to here about your success stories on Teiid. Also, if something is not working for you as you expect, then come engage us in a discussion, together we can solve the issue the OSS way! Thank You BenK

Teiid on OpenShift demo is available!

We now have a Teiid demo available for deployment to OpenShift.  Teiid allows you to access and integrate data from a variety of distributed data sources - in real-time, without moving your data from its system of record.  OpenShift is Red Hat's Cloud Computing Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering. You can now deploy the Teiid engine to a free OpenShift cloud instance and try it for yourself!  To get your free demo started today, see our install instructions . The demo provides easy-to-follow articles which will show you how to access and integrate data from three disparate sources: MySQL database containing account data Twitter feed webservice Salesforce instance These are just a few of the many sources you can access with Teiid.  And with Teiid, you can easily join any of the sources to create your own federated data views!

Teiid Spring Boot 1.7.0 Released

Teiid Spring Boot version 1.7.0 to support Teiid 16.0 has been released. This release is mainly to support the Teiid's latest version.  In this release, the support for OpenAPI code generation based on VDB has been removed as there is no community interest and moreover it was at OpenAPI 2.0, and the industry has moved to 3.0 and beyond. There are no plans to further pursue this feature. VDB maven plugin was also removed, which was intended to be a replacement for the VDB importing feature was to be used when working on OpenShift, however, since it requires the Maven repository and does not completely represent the feature as defined on the WildFly based deployments this is also removed. You can still use the VDB import feature with Teiid Spring Boot, simply define the VDB with your "IMPORT DATABASE" statements and provide the additional files along with the main VDB file. During the start of the application, Teiid Spring Boot will load all the necessary DDL files for the
