On the command line

In addition to using a command string on the command line, you can also use adapter commands in command files, batch files, or shell scripts.

Use adapter-specific execution commands to:

  • Override particular settings for an existing source, such as a user ID and password for database adapters.
  • Override an existing source or target, using file, application, message or another entity.

Specify the preferred adapter commands using an execution command string on the command line, or, create a command file that contains adapter commands dictating the execution settings.

For information on adapter-specific input and output execution command overrides, see the Execution Commands documentation.
