Teiid is detected via the execution of a JSON request testing for the existence of the teiid
subsystem. This requires the jboss server to be running.
For 8.2 Final (and up until this morning while I have been experimenting), the 'Teiid Instance
Configuration' node in the server tree (in the
Server View) is a permanent feature. Its child will remain as a 'Not Connected' node. The Teiid
Instance tab in the Server Editor does update to
display a 'Teiid not installed' message once the server has been started.
However, my experiments have been successful in getting this node to disappear entirely once the
server starts (if teiid is unsupported) and
to magically appear (if teiid is supported).
The Teiid node is determined via the navigatorContent extension point and trigger points can be
placed on the implementation to determine whether
the content should be added or not. A trigger point testing whether the IServer instance can be
adapted to an ITeiidServer determines whether the
'Teiid Instance Configuration' node is displayed or not. Since the tree is refreshed when a server
is started/stopped this trigger point is
re-evaluated and the content updated accordingly.
This change will be part of 8.3.Final, which is pencilled in as the release to go forward as product.

Teiid 8.6 Alpha1 has been posted - http://www.jboss.org/teiid/downloads
This includes the initial Cassandra connectivity provided by community member Radek Koubský, OSGI compatibility for Teiid embedded, and several important fixes. Temporarily the embedded kit is broken as the resource adapter jars are being built incorrectly. As the documentation and a few other features are rounded out we'll have a bigger pre-release posting about Alpha2.
The Teiid Team
Even though we have several issues not fully resolve in 8.6 and the embedded kit is slightly broken, I'd still like to proceed with alpha1 either later today or tomorrow. Is there anything that should hold this up?
In general we'll be a little light on 8.6 features as we continue to work on 8.4.x issues, but we have added OSGI bundles, Cassandra connectivity via a contribution, and a base implementation of conformed tables, so this does seem to warrant an initial release.
