Request for caching to work with WTX Oracle adapter

Hello ,

We have review your questions and comment with our developers in order for this result caching to work with WTX Oracle adapter, a design change would be needed in order to cache the Oracle statement handle.

Currently, WTX Oracle adapter only caches the connection handle. In order for it to cache the statement handle, additional logic would be required.

This additional logic would probably involve defining a new command line parameter, such as for example "-CACHE ".
Whenever the WTX Oracle adapter encountered the -CACHE parameter, it would save the statement handle for subsequent re-use.
Once another DBLookup query was issued with a matching cache , then the statement handle would be re-used.
The would be a quick way for the Oracle adapter to identify those statement handles that could be re-used without having to perform additional parsing during the connection comparison re-use phase.

If you need this capability , please submit an enhancement request on our RFE web site :
WebSphere Transformation Extender products, they are located under the B2B & Commerce brand.

This will be reviewed and followed by the product management team and be implemented in future releases once accepted.

Please let me know if I have correctly answered your query and if you need any further assistance or if you have any additional question on this PMR .

Best regards,
