I have a proposal on how to import translator based medadata in the
Teiid Designer instead of creating a custom importer each time we add a
To support dynamic VDBs, Teiid team creates metadata facilities for most
sources, it is prudent to use same facility in the Designer for
importing metadata rather than creating another facility. Currently it
is determined that "DatabaseMetadata" object is not sufficient and Teiid
does not expose any Admin API method for this.
In 8.0, Teiid defined DDL based matadata importer for a translator, if
we write a reverse of this, where one can export DDL from the imported
metadata then Teiid can provide a Admin API method for this, thus
allowing the Teiid Designer to hook into Teiid and retrieve the
metadata. Any thoughts?
