Using Apache DdlUtils to Import Data

The GemFire XD installation includes Apache DdlUtils 1.1, and you can use DdlUtils in combination with Apache Ant to import data into GemFire XD. The information in these sections is intended for customers who are familiar with DdlUtils and want to use DdlUtils in place of the available gfxd commands.

Note: The GemFire XD stored procedures available in the SYSCS_UTIL schema (IMPORT_DATA_EX and IMPORT_TABLE_EX) provide the highest performance for importing bulk data. Consider using the stored procedures for data sets larger than several gigabytes. See Exporting and Importing Bulk Data from Text Files.
