eSTRIP as the name suggests is an ADASTRIP extender. It extends ADASTRIP by allowing users to select data in a parent child type relationship, ie, records that are related by a common key can be extracted to create subsets of data. This data is suitable for test databases or publishing related data to a data warehouse in an RDBMS from the high performance transaction ADABAS databases.
eSTRIP provides facilities to create the primary key extract file and then runs as a special ADASTRIP user exit which undertakes the selection process as required.
Associated with eSTRIP but nonetheless sold as separate products are a set of useful ADASTRIP Exits.
