Capture DB segment replace calls which actual data is not updated.

Our client is currently using Dprop(IMS DataPropagater for z/OS) for creating Data Warehouse. Dprop captures replace calls and writes to PRDS(Propagation Request Data Set) even when DB segment was not actually updated. Client’s Dprop application program is using these non-updated capture records for their business logics. Therefore we would like to ask you to provide a new feature for CCDC as an option to do MQ Publishing even when capturing non-updated replace calls. Two major use cases needing this requirement. Client is strongly requesting compatibility with Dprop in these use cases. 1. Triggering business logic When Dprop application receives captured data for Fixed-term deposit statement segment, it triggers interest calculation logic and updates cumulative balance field. This interest calculation logic should be executed even though the segment does not include actual update. There are several other business logics triggered by updated and non-updated replace calls. 2. Timestamp Some DWH tables created by Dprop has timestamp fields and are used by batch process. Timestamp is updated from the actual captured time of the replace calls (including non-updated replace calls).
