Add bulk insert feature to the Db2 federation

Db2 Federation offers different types of wrappers to transfer data from a source database to a target database. For the federation from Db2 LUW to Oracle we tried the JDBC, NET8 and ODBC wrapper, but all wrappers process the rows one by one. To get a performance gain, a bulk insert for the NET8 would be helpful.
