Teiid 8.4 CR1 Available

Teiid 8.4 CR1 for EAP 6.1.Alpha* is now available in our downloads.  The new features Beta2:
  • TEIID-2504 Improved socket results processing large results processing over a socket transport have been significantly improved for forward only results. Scrollable results will have only a marginal improvement.
  • TEIID-2427 TEIID-2311 Column Masking added column masking and refined row-based security. Also allow for permissions to be granted via the MetadataFactory methods addPermission and addColumnPermisison to enable adding roles via a MetadataRepository.

Additional web service security features and mongo connectivity have made it into 8.4 and will be fully doc'ed and in the release notes by the next CR/Final.

If needed we will produce a CR2 in approximately 10 days and will generally be selective about what issues get released before the Final. 

Beyond the 8.4 Final we now have the 8.4.1 and 8.5 release version targets active to take additional issues.

*And now more on the switch to EAP 6.1...

If you have any concerns about switching from AS to EAP first read: http://www.jboss.org/jbossas/faq

The most important take away is that EAP 6.1 Alpha is roughly the same as what AS 7.2 Final would have been - including licensing.  So don't be scared off by the name, version, or alpha designation.

Q: How does all this tie into the Teiid release schedule?

A: Teiid 8.4 and subsequent 8.x releases will be targeting the EAP line.  It is not clear however if there will be another public release of EAP off of the AS 7.x line. 

Q: Will subsequent Teiid 8.x releases remain compatible with EAP 6.1 Alpha (or whatever the latest public release is)?

A: Yes, until Wildfly 8 is released and a Teiid 9.0 is available targeting it at which point the community effort will track only the latest.  More than likely this implies both a Teiid 8.5 and 8.6.

Q: When will Teiid 9.0 be available?

A: That's not definitive.  Wildfly has its first alpha already available - http://www.wildfly.org/download/ and https://issues.jboss.org/browse/WFLY targets the release in November.  That would put Teiid 9.0 tentatively at the beginning of 2014.

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 https://developer.jboss.org/message/920818#920818 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 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
