In the previous releases of Teiid, only "JDBC" and "Text" connectors
be used in the Dynamic VDBs, as these were the only two connectors that
were aware of their metadata for data integration.
In Teiid 7.0, with the latest changes from SteveH for the XML
Translators and resource adapters, now all the Translators are metadata
aware, except for LDAP (we are still working on this one). So, now you
can integrate data from all data sources that Teiid supports using the
Dynamic VDB feature.
This marks a very important first milestone towards the breaking away
the implicit dependency on Designer tool for building the VDB. Now you
can use the "Dynamic VDB", to do the data integration if it fits your
data integration needs.
However, please note that if you need the abstraction "virtual" layer
above your schema, you still need to use the Designer for building the
VDB as before.
Check out the new examples showing these features in the Teiid download.
