Just a brief explanation.

normally router means multiple targets...take 2 groups first group condition isnull and second group condition not isnull.first group gives the null values and second group gives the non null values.

source-->sq-->expression-->router-->2 targets

Router 1st condition : isnull 2nd condition : not isnull

In SQL Server, Unique Key Constraint will allow only one NULL value. But there are situations that are more than one null value in the column, but still have to maintain Uniqueness by ignoring all null values.

I have some mappings, where business entities are being populated after transformation logic.

The row volumes are on the higher side, and there are quite a few business attributes which are defaulted to certain static values.

Therefore, in order to reduce the data pushed from mapping, i created "default" clause on the target table, and stopped feeding them from the mapping itself. Now, this works out just fine when I am running the session in "Normal" mode. This effectively gives me target table rows, with some columns being fed by the mapping, and the rest taking values based on the "default" clause on the table DDL.

However, since we are dealing with higher end of volumes, I want to run my session in bulk mode (there are no pre-existing indexes on the target tables).

As soon as I switch the session to bulk mode, this particular feature, (of default values) stops working. As a result of this, I get NULL values in the target columns, instead of defined "default" values.

My question is-
1.Is this expected behavior ?
2.If not, am I missing out on some configuration somewhere ?
3.Should I be making a ticket to Oracle ? or Informatica ?

My configuration -

Informatica 9.5.1 64 bit, with Oracle 11g r2 ( running on Solaris (SunOS 5.10)

Looking forward to help here...
