Teiid 10.3.1 Released

We are pleased to announce the release of Teiid 10.3.1 (A regression with TEIID-5314 caused an immediate patch release).  See all 48 issues addressed.  The feature highlight are:
  • TEIID-5293 Added implicit partition wise joining in non-multisource scenarios as well.
  • TEIID-5308 Added ENV_VAR and SYS_PROP functions and clarified the usage of the ENV function.
  • TEIID-4745 Added a polling query to trigger the reload of materialized views.
  • TEIID-5317 Added ODBC 3.0 functions current_time, current_date, current_timestamp.
  • TEIID-5314 Environment variables can now be used instead of or to override system properties.
  • TEIID-5307 Added more information_schema tables for pg compatibility.
  • TEIID-4864 Added update support to the Excel translator.
Special thanks to the many community members who contributed to this release - in particular Andreas Krück, Divyesh Vallabh, Mathieu Rampant, Mike Higgins, Pedro Inácio, Yuming Zhu, Michael Echevarria, and Bram Gadeyne.

We should also extend a warm welcome to Rafal Korytkowski to the Teiid Team. Rafal has begun by finishing off the work on the Exosal translator and will help with efforts related to cloud and OpenShift support.

Other Important Stuff:
  • The new website is (mostly) live! See teiid.io. There are no under construction animated GIFs, but you can expect a few issues as we get the new Hugo/Netlify/Travis build worked out. Notice that we're effectively combining tooling and backend under a single site.  The content is being updated to be more relevant for cloud and OpenShift deployments. A lot of work is happening in creating a self-service data virtualization OpenShift based solution. If you have any interest in becoming involved, or would like to see more around the image build/configuration please let us know.
  • Teiid 10.2.2 and 10.1.4 will be available in the next couple of days. That will effectively end support for the 10.1.x release stream.
Thank you,
The Teiid Team

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

Teiid Runtimes Explained

If you have been following Teiid lately we have been going through a whole lot of renovations. Yes, renovations or reorganization or refactoring or whatever you want to call it. Basically, we are making Teiid more modular with fewer dependencies that can be used by however your use case dictates rather than use it as one monolith application deployed into WildFly JEE Application Server. There is nothing wrong in using Teiid as server model, but with the proliferation of container-based workloads and cloud-based architectures, the previous server-based model does not work or simply won't scale. So, we needed to think of alternatives, thus Teiid team introduced a couple different versions modular Teiid what we are calling as "Teiid Runtimes". Note that in these modular Teiid runtimes, not all the features you were used to using in Teiid Server model may not be there but you will have extensions to add in those that are most appropriate for your domain.
