The DSParams file contains the values for all the parameters and environment variables of a DataStage Project. The structure of this file changes in different releases of DataStage. As result, copying a DSParams from a different release is not a valid procedure and it should never be attempted. Doing this will cause unexpected behavior in DataStage, including abnormal terminations. Depending … Read more >>

E.g. DataStage does not provide regular expression functionality. So we can created shared object of regular expression functionality in C and used it in DataStage.
Before we start writing routines:
-Some compilers require that the source code extension be “C” not “c”. … Read more >>
