TDM -Legacy/Standard model for DB2 & CHAR datatype


Article ID: 185931


Updated On:


CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)


Database: DB2 12 on z/OS Mainframe

Data Type: CHAR

We are currently utilizing Legacy F&R Model to avoid Prefetch functionality that New/Standard F&R Model enforces.While using legacy model for DB2, we are not able to see CHAR datatype columns popping up in the model key section.Can you confirm:-

  1. Is CHAR data type supported in Legacy F&R model for above database? 
  2. CHAR datatype is supported only in New/Standard F&R Model  (or)  in both the F&R Models (New & Legacy) ?

We would also like to know if BROADCOM has considered Live data view/Non-prefetched data in the new F&R models in the upcoming versions/enhancements.


Release : 4.8

Component : CA Test Data Manager


The latest 4.9 version should handle legacy and new models
