Thread: A new version of GeoKettle released!

    Default A new version of GeoKettle released!

    Hello,

    The GeoSOA research group (http://geosoa.scg.ulaval.ca) of the Centre for Research in Geomatics at Laval University, Quebec City, Canada is proud to announce the release of a new version of GeoKettle (http://www.geokettle.org).

    GeoKettle is a "spatially-enabled" version of Pentaho Data Integration Kettle, http://kettle.pentaho.org). This special distribution of Kettle includes extensions which enable the use of geospatial (GIS) data. Like Kettle, GeoKettle is released under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL).

    GeoKettle v3.1.0-20081027 is still in alpha version but demonstrates the potential of this ETL tool dedicated to spatial data warehouses and Spatial OLAP (SOLAP) applications.


    What's new since release 2.5.2-20080531 ?

    - The GeoKettle extensions were ported to the new Pentaho Data Integration (PDI) version 3.1.0-GA. As such, this release of GeoKettle includes all the improvements from the new PDI version.

    - Changed the core Geometry object framework from GeOxygene to the Java Topology Suite (JTS).

    - Added native support for Oracle Spatial and MySQL geospatial DBMS.

    - Speed improvements: due to the upgrade of PDI core and to the JTS library, GeoKettle now offers better throughput. We measured a typical speedup of row throughput between 15% and 60% (depending of the transformation) when using geospatial data.

    Oups, the right version number of this new release of GeoKettle is GeoKettle v3.1.0-20081103 and not GeoKettle v3.1.0-20081027 ... Sorry for the confusion.

    Hoping you will enjoy GeoKettle.
