My comment about in place data was a reply to your comment about in place data. It sounded like you were suggesting not transferring data to the SQL Server, rather having it just read the data it needed from the IBM i when it needed it.

Keep in mind to test all scenarios with ArdGate as well if you go down that road.
I have been able to freeze up that engine when playing with it.
Mileage will vary with any tool even ours :-)
PS: I didn't understand your previous comment in regards to in place data. Using ArdGate, Scotts JDBC Method, our RPG2SQL or whatever you use for DB access are all essentially the same methodology if you are reading or writing data records. Hmmmm :-) ?

Reading/inserting a record at a time is a process my mind can grasp, but I suspect the performance would be abysmal given the volume of data.
I had forgotten about ArdGate until after I posted. I was thinking about that more when I still couldn't sleep. Part of the future design will be to allow an end user to resubmit the build job with selection criteria, so having a server process in place will make a lot of sense, rather than having Java running in the user's job.

I have no experience that compares with your .3M to 1M rows, but my guess is you will need to do serious performance testing.
We looked at ArdGate which is open source available on SourceForge.net - I found a lot to
