In this post we will discuss how Source Target Level Commit in informatica works.
First of all What is a Commit to a Data Base : – A Commit is a instruction to the database server , which tells it to the save the state of the database session at that point of time.
Informatica supports two commit categories / levels :-
1) Source Level Commit
2) Target Level Commit
Source Level Commit :- In this type of commit an integration service issue commit to the underlying data base (Oracle , SQL Server e.t.c.) when a particular number of rows has been read from the source data base irrespective of the number of rows inserted to the data base.
Let’s Take an Example : –
A (ORACLE) source is reading and it has taken 505 rows till now and in target there you have 300 inserted rows so far , and mean while rest of the rows are getting processed with in the mapping and in session properties you have selected source level commit with row interval of 510. As soon as source will pick 510th row the integration service will issue a commit to the underlying data base however there are still 300 rows in target , only 300 rows will be committed. Rest rows will be committed either again reading 510 rows or after completion of the session.
Number of source rows reading matters in this case.
Target Level Commit :- In this commit type the integration service issues a commit to the data base once a particular number of rows are inserted to the data base.
Let’s Take an Example : –
your source is reading and has read 500 rows so far and in the session properties you had selected Target Level Commit with commit interval of 300 rows. And in target you have 250 rows so far , now your source has read 800 rows and in your target you just touched 300th row , immediately a commit will fire on the target data base.
Number of target rows affected matters in this case.

Today we will discuss how call db sequence from Talend while loading data. For demo purposes we have taken Oracle as our Database.STEPS:
1) Create a sequence in Database using : –create sequence test_seq start with 1 increment by 1;
select test_seq.nextval from dual;
3)Go to Advance Setting Tab of oracle output component and change the settings as defined in the screenshot.
seqence_name.nextval is the command which you have to write in SQL Expression. so that for every row this expression will call your Sequence present at Database Level.

Overall Job Desc:- Multiple Columns From UnConnected Lookup
Now In Lookup Transformation use override sql query feature and create an additional port which will going to be the return port and override the sql query as given below.
SELECT S_ULOOKUP_REAL.AGEas AGE
, S_ULOOKUP_REAL.NAME as NAME
, S_ULOOKUP_REAL.ADDRESS as ADDRESS
, S_ULOOKUP_REAL.ID as ID
,name||’,’||address||’,’||age as DATA
Now call your Lookup Using :LKP.LKPTRANS(ID) , and then you can separate your column values using String Functions like SUBSTR() and many more…
so. this is how you can return Multiple Columns From UnConnected Lookup …

In our previous post we discussed what is the use of Date Time Dimension in Warehousing environment and shown a demo displaying a Date-Time Dimension using Informatica.
So, in this post we will demonstrate the same implementation using Talend Open Studio.
2)tMap(for data manipulation)
3)tConvertType(to change the data type)
COMPLETE JOB DESCRIPTION:-
In tOracleInput component define two columns as a schema both must be of data type and in sql editor write the query given below.
“select sysdate+level,trunc(sysdate+level,’q’) from dual connect by level < 366”
first column will return you data serially from the current date and second column will give you first date for every quarter.
Most of the implementation is completed using existing components.
To compute monthOfQuarter–
To pull out Weekday in character format use–
To calculate days from first date of quarter–
So, this is how you can implement a basic date-time dimension. Beyond this you can alter this current implementation as per your requirement.
Thanks for giving your precious time….kindly leave a comment in case of any queries ..
