Issue/Introduction

I am looking for ways to build datasets quicker. Assuming I break the header record publish as Job1 and Trailer as last publish, I want to bulk up what is between them. I can then update the header or trailer if it has a requirement for number of accounts/records.

Concept 1: It occurred to me I could take different bundle records and outside the header and trailer records update the bundle_ID. this might mean getting a temporary drop of relational constraints to do this. I think this way I can run multiple Jobs using TDM Server and publish bundles concurrently and then combine them.

Concept 2: can we use the doubling scripts for the body records to avoid the application Server and speed up data production

Concept 3: Custom Javelin or Java programs? Does the Javelin .Net support connecting to z/OS??

Resolution

You cannot have two different publishes to the same bundle_id with a large number of rows generated and then committing (batch commit in application properties). However,using batch commit significantly sped up the time to create records.
