Answer / neetu arora
Dynamic cache is generally used when u are applying lookup
on a target table and in one flow same data is coming twice
for insertion or once for insertion and once for updation.
Performance: dynamic cache decreases the performance in
comparision to static cache since it first looks in the
whole table tht whether data ws previously present if no
thn only it inserts so it takes much tym
Static cache do not see such things just insert data as
many tyms as it is coming.

Answer / hari
By default lookup is static.
Dynamic is used whn the records coming frm the source to
target in multiple times. i.e if
(first this is inserted to target)
2)at second time when 101 employee is changing his city frm
hyd to chennai here we need to update the target table with
city name as chennai. thn how lookup cache knows tht a
record is updated...
3) if it is static lookup, after updating tht record it
will not refresh the lookup cache.... where as if it is
dynamic cache it will refresh the cache....
4) Based on our requirement we r going to use.....

Answer / krishna
i hope you were a bit wrong.
static cache is also used to check whether row exists or
well krishna for your question on dynamic cache..
static cache is one in which data when changed in the
target table cannot be incorporated in the look up on the
when you use a dynamic cache any changes to the target
table gets reflected in the lookup even if the record is
being inserted or updated in the same mapping run priorly

if you need the source data after look up transformation to
transfer any other transformation more than once you can use

Answer / nisith
Whenever you required changes in your target as a lookup
than go for dynamic.Static means its a readonly why do u

Answer / nitin
I have a major doubt in static and dynamic cache.
1. what is the use of both?
2. while using dynamic cache(looking up target table),say a record is entering from source emp_id = 101, which is already in the target so this will be updated am i correct?
3. while using a static cache, same scenario as above the record also gets updated.
4. what happens in both the caches, when again a same record enters from the source
5. when will the record be rejected as a duplicate?
from my understanding, while using a static cache for already existing record in target. when a same record appears twice from source then the record that is appearing second time will be rejected as a duplicate. but in dyanmic cache it will not?.. is this true?
Please help me understand when the record will be rejected as a duplicate and when it will be updated, in case of dynamic and static cache
