Teiid 9.1 Alpha2 Available

After a small delay Teiid 9.1 Alpha2 has been posted.  Notable features since Alpha1:
  • TEIID-4332 Improved NDV calculations for costing.
  • TEIID-2715 OData Metadata support for providing the metadata extension properties for OData.
Also the OData 2 service layer has been removed.  Please contact the community if you still need that functionality and want to maintain it as an independent project.

WildFly Upgrade

While most of the issues with the WildFly upgrade should be resolved.  It is unclear when progress will be made on TEIID-3834: start/stop of a data source or resource adapter requires a restart (somewhat worse behavior than WildFly 9 from our perspective)

Teiid Whipper

Whipper is a new project that will incorporate the changes made to our BQT testing framework by our Red Hat QE team and will aim to provide new features / ease of use for validation testing of all things Teiid.

Teiid Designer

Teiid Designer should have a release compatible with WildFly 9 / Teiid 8.13.x and Teiid 9.0.x in the next two weeks.  There is still no timeline yet for a Teiid Designer release compatible with WildFly 10.

The OpenShift web UI continues to progress, please contact their community is you have any interest in following or contributing to the work.

9.0.x

9.0.3 is due out in approximately 2-3 weeks.

8.13.x

If needed 8.13.7, the last fix release on 8.13, will be available by the general release of 9.1.

As always thanks for all the community support,
Steve

  • [TEIID-4311] - Teiid Admin Api not support to create XA datasource on Jboss server.
  • [TEIID-4321] - VDB Validation is showing warnings, but failing deployment
  • [TEIID-4324] - TEIID30019 Unexpected exception for request ... java.lang.AssertionError: Batch not found in storage

A special thanks to Bram Gadeyne for identifying TEIID-4324 and to Mark Tawk for highlighting TEIID-4325 and TEIID-4342.

 Next up will be the 9.1 Alpha2 release by the end of the week.

Teiid 8.13.6 Released

The 8.13.6 fix release is now available.  This addresses 11 important issues:
  • [TEIID-3685] - org.teiid.padSpace does not affect to the "IN" operator
  • [TEIID-3815] - Oracle translator - OFFSET function does not work
  • [TEIID-4244] - Assertion failed error when joining duplicate rows to a table from other source
  • [TEIID-4248] - Build change for 8.13 caused the release notes to miss the version replacement
  • [TEIID-4260] - Accumulo: Resource adapter fails to load
  • [TEIID-4262] - Wrong result (empty or NULL) with an view and a single disjunction for join criteria
  • [TEIID-4280] - NPE in RuleMergeVirtual when running a query with nested CTEs
  • [TEIID-4287] - An exception is thrown by PostgreSQL when nested CTEs are pushed down
  • [TEIID-4290] - Rollback to savepoint should be a no op
  • [TEIID-4320] - Costing calculation issues
  • [TEIID-4324] - TEIID30019 Unexpected exception for request ... java.lang.AssertionError: Batch not found in storage
This is likely the second to last fix release for 8.13.  Expect an 8.13.7 in about a month and for fix releases to continue on 9.0.x after that.

  • [TEIID-4310] - Sessions can not be shown in web-console runtime sub-panel
  • [TEIID-4312] - INNER and LEFT joins of CTEs fail or return incorrect results
Expect an 8.13.6 release to follow in a couple of days.

Thanks,

Teiid 9.1 Alpha1 Released

Teiid 9.1 Alpha1 has been posted.  This is expected to be a typical 3 month feature release cycle with pre-releases about every two weeks.  So far in Alpha1 you'll find:
  • TEIID-4243 BatchUpdateException support in JDBC to indicate what part of batch succeeds when a failure occurs.
  • TEIID-4191 NO QUOTE option for TEXTAGG.
  • TEIID-4200 Moved to WildFly 10 as host environment
WildFly Upgrade

We chose to stick with the Teiid 9.x release series even with the platform update since we not introducing Teiid centric feature changes and this by itself will not be a breaking change for most.  However the WildFly 10 upgrade does mean that JRE 1.8+ is required for both the server and embedded.  Teiid 9.0 will be supported for an extended period to provide a JRE 1.7 compatible platform.  Other know issues:

TEIID-4306: xa datasource create cli not work
TEIID-3834: start/stop of a data source or resource adapter requires a restart (somewhat worse behavior than WildFly 9 from our perspective)

Teiid Designer

A Teiid Designer release should be available shortly that is compatible with WildFly 9 and Teiid 8.13.x with partial support for Teiid 9.0.x.  A Teiid Designer release compatible with WildFly 10 is TDB.  The tooling team has several irons including refinements to the OpenShift web UI and the Komodo project - so anyone with an interest in tooling work should contact their community.

Coming Soon to 9.1

TEIID-3617: Provide an option to Limit per user based connections
TEIID-3754: OData V2 service removal
TEIID-4000: Data Expand support
And much more...

9.0.x

9.0.1 is due out later this week, and as mentioned above we'll keep supporting 9.0.x for an extended period.

8.13.x

8.13.6 is due out next week.  At this point only critical/blocker fixes will make it into 8.13.x.

As always thanks for all the community support,
Steve
