Use Data Stage data map as input to DVM Virtual Table definition
Currently Data Stage users who want to use DVM, must convert the Data Stage metadata maps to COBOL copybooks to be used when defining a DVM virtual table. It would be more efficient to the user to use the Data Stage metadata map as input to the DVM virtual table definition.
In Data Stage there is a format tab that lists the fields mapping the layout of the data. The Data Stage file layout could be used as the metadata map source for DVM Virtual Tables instead of having to convert this layout to a COBOL copybook.
The benefits would be to all DVM users who also use Data Stage. The option to use Data Stage metadata maps when defining a Virtual Table will reduce the time to create a virtual table and provide a more seamless user experience between Data Stage and DVM.
