I'm working on a new project for a client, studying the feasibility of making Teradata calls and exeuting tools from the .NET provider (it'll be part of a REST service). As part of this, my client has asked me to check whether these tools can be called/executed in any way from the .NET provider, be it directly or through its equivalent (even if performance is not the same):
If it's not possible to execute utilities like Fastload or Multiload directly through the provider, is there a way of wrapping them in a stored procedure in Teradata so that we just have to call those procedures? Or alternatively, are there any executables we could pass parameters on to do the execution? I've read something about "plink.exe" but I can't find any relevant information for my case.
I hope you can help me and I apologise for dumping this giant request on your lap, but I haven't found anything on my own and the deadline is quite tight.
