IBM® WebSphere® Extended Deployment Compute Grid V8 offers a new feature called skip-record processing for controlling how a batch application responds to error conditions. Skip-record processing enables a batch data stream to automatically skip records that encounter read or write exceptions. This feature is useful when dealing with very large datasets that could contain a few bad records. The batch application can log the skip, discard the bad record, and continue processing the remaining records without interruption, thereby improving the efficiency of the batch environment. The environment is also more resilient, in that a single bad record does not interrupt the entire batch job. This content is part of the IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal.
