    Evaluating Teiid

    Anil Nair Newbie

      Hi All,

      We are trying to evaluate Teiid for our project for which we previously did the poc using  teiid embedded.

      The following are the confusion and roadblocks that I am encountering during this evaluation

      I was able to download JBoss_teiid 8.10.1 and was able to deploy it without any issues

      1. Now the problem is I wanted to create VDBs and deploy:

      I am using eclipese and the current Teiid designer 9.0  is only compatible with Teiid 8.8  and due to which I am unable to start or deploy the VDBs.

      Here here are the questions I have

      1. So from the issue I understand that I would not be able to use Teiid designer while using Teiid 8.10.1, Is this the right assumption or am I missing anything?

      2. If  the above assumption is right the what is the other tool that I should be using? or should i go the Dynamic VDB route.

      Thanks

          Anil,

          1. So from the issue I understand that I would not be able to use Teiid designer while using Teiid 8.10.1, Is this the right assumption or am I missing anything?

          • You only need to connect from Teiid Designer to Teiid server for doing the preview of the results, if you do not care about it, the Designer you have will works fine.
          • The restriction that Teiid Designer has to a particular version is an superficial one, so that it can manage the metadata language enhancements  correctly. It should have supported newer version of the Teiid runtime at the previous version of Teiid metadata. For example, running a VDB with Teiid 8.8 version of metadata on Teiid runtime >= Teiid 8.8. Designer team is fixing this issue, should be in next release.
          • I suggest you try JBoss Developer Studio from here JBoss Developer Studio - Overview , this is integrated product which is easy to install, and have latest patches. See this for work around [TEIIDDES-2464] NPE trying to connect to Teiid server for importing - JBoss Issue Tracker

          2. If  the above assumption is right the what is the other tool that I should be using? or should i go the Dynamic VDB route.

          Well, that is the choice you need to make. If you are comfortable in hand coding a VDB (these can get complex), this is the better choice. But Designer helps with lot UI based design. very soon the VDB produced from Designer will be a Dynamic VDB.

           

          More over the next version of Designer may be right around the corner. I do not have dates, but hopefully someone from Designer team will chime in with expected dates.

              We're planning on a Teiid Designer 9.1 release next week which should solve your issue.
