Eight Steps to Creating a DataStage Job

  1. Drag the stage icons onto the screen.

  2. Link the stage icons, and name the stages and links.

    Name passive stages with the table/file names they access.
    Name active stages to match their function.
    Name links to express the direction and type of data flowing through them.

  3. Set the properties of the passive stage icons.

  4. Set the properties of the active stage icons.

  5. Performance tune the job.

    Remove unused columns from transforms. This does not apply to columns in sequential files or output to hash files.

  6. Compile the job.

  7. Validate the job (in DataStage Director)

  8. Run (test) the job (in DataStage Director)
