JDV 6.1 beta Documentation is available at https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_JBoss_Data_Virtualization/
For JDV 6.1, we focused on three major areas:
• Big Data
• Development and Deployment Improvements
with the following new features and enhancements
- Cloudera Impala
In addition to the Apache Hive support released in JDV 6.0, JDV 6.1 will also offer support for Cloudera Impala for fast SQL query access to data stored in Hadoop. Support of Impala is aligned with our growing partnership with Cloudera that was announced in October.
- Apache Solr
New in JDV 6.1 is support for Apache Solr as a data source. With Apache Solr, JDV customers will be able to take advantage of enterprise search capabilities for organized retrieval of structured and unstructured data.
Support for MongoDV as a NoSQL data source was released in Technical Preview in JDV 6.0 and will be fully supported in JDV 6.1. Support of MongoDB brings support for a document-oriented NoSQL database to JDV customers.
- JDG 6.3
Support for JDG as a data source was new in JDV 6.0. We expand on this support in JDV 6.1, with the ability to perform writes in addition to reads. JDV 6.1 users can also take advantage of JDG Library mode as an embedded cache in addition to the support as a remote cache that was previously available.
- Apache Cassandra (Tech Preview)
Apache Cassandra will be released as a Technical Preview in JDV 6.1. Support of Apache Cassandra brings support for the popular columnar NoSQL database to JDV customers.
- OpenShift Online with new WebUI
We introduced JDV in OpenShift Online as Developer Preview with the JDV 6.0 release and will update our Developer Preview cartridge for JDV 6.1. With JDV 6.1, we are adding a WebUI that focuses on ease of use for web and mobile developers. This lightweight user interface allows users to quickly access a library of existing data services, or create one of their own in a top-down manner. Getting Started instructions can be found here: https://developer.jboss.org/wiki/IntroToTheDataVirtualizationWebInterfaceOnOpenShift
- SFDC Bulk API
With JDV 6.1 we improve support for the Salesforce.com Bulk API with a more RESTful interface and better resource handling. The SFDC Bulk API is optimized for loading very large sets of data.
- Cloud Enablement
With JDV 6.1 we will have full support of JBoss Data Virtualization on Amazon EC2 and Google Compute Engine.
PRODUCTIVITY AND DEPLOYMENT IMPROVEMENTS
-Security audit log dashboard
Consistent centralized security capabilities across multiple heterogeneous data sources is a key value proposition for JDV. In JDV we add a security audit log dashboard that can be viewed in the dashboard builder which is included with JDV. The security audit log works with JDV’s RBAC feature and displays who has been accessing what data and when.
- Custom Translator improvements
JDV offers a large number of supported data sources out of box and also provides the capability for users to build their own custom translators. In JDV 6.1 we are providing features to improve usability including archetype templates that can be used to generate a starting maven project for custom development. When the project is created, it will contain the essential classes and resources to begin adding custom logic.
- Azul Zing JVM
JDV 6.1 will provide support for Azul Zing JVM. Azul Zing is optimized for Linux server deployments and designed for enterprise applications and workloads that require any combination of large memory, high transaction rates, low latency, consistent response times or high sustained throughput.
JDV 6.1 will support MariaDB as a data source. MariaDB is the default implementation of MySQL in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. MariaDB is a community-developed fork of the MySQL database project, and provides a replacement for MySQL. MariaDB preserves API and ABI compatibility with MySQL and adds several new features.
- Apache POI Connector for Excel
JDV has long supported Microsoft Excel as a data source. In JDV 6.1, we add support for the Apache POI connector that allows reading of Microsoft Excel documents on all platforms.
- Performance Improvements
We continue to invest in improved performance with every release of JDV. In JDV 6.1, we focused particularly on improving performance with dependent joins including greater control over full dependent join pushdown to the datasource(s).
- EAP 6.3
JDV 6.1 will be based on EAP 6.3 and take advantage of the new patching capabilities provided by EAP.
