tool supports the efficient and parallel transfer of large data
sets from a ZLE Data Store to an analytical server for analysis
in SAS Enterprise Miner. The tool, provides an intuitive and
convenient web browser interface for transferring a table from
a ZLE Data Store directly into a SAS data set on an analytical
Transfer Tool provides following features:
to transfer the data on various flavors of UNIX and Windows
Ability to specify the format in which the data is transferred
ASCII file (delimited or CSV, Fixed Width Format), the SAS
Ability to Schedule the execution and monitor of an actual
Ability to verify that sufficient disk space exists on the
machine before the transfer begins
Ability to preview the first n (e.g. 100) rows
to compress the data before transferring over the network
Ability to detect errors using check sum, to assure that the
transferred successfully without errors.
system and software requirements for each of the four components
of the Data Transfer Tool are described below.

tool should work with other browsers as well, though, since
the web server component returns only HTML to a client browser
or anything other than HTML is required.

platforms and 1.1 or higher on Tru64 platforms
Runtime Environment: Version 1.4.0 or higher
layer could run on the Mining Mart server itself. This is not
a necessity. The Web Server accesses the ZDS using JDBC. If
the Web server resides on Windows NT/2000, it accesses ZDS using
JDBC ODBC (Type 1) driver, if the Web Server resides on Alpha-Tru64,
it accesses the ZDS using JDBC Type 3 driver.
