    Teiid metadata

    henryng33 Newbie

      I am using 8.1 Final and it seems that Teiid ALWAYS add a database table as Table type in metadata via MetaDataFactory.addTable call even it is a database VIEW type.

       

      Is there any reason?

       

      Thanks

          A source based table or view always appear similar to Teiid as Table for pushdown purposes. A View in Teiid is the virtual view, that you defined on top the source tables to abstract the data. So, during the import you kind of loose that type of information. Teiid can keep additional metadata to track as such, but that information is of no use for Teiid internal purposes.
