Teradata Parallel Transporter is a really nice tool which offers new capabilities in comparison to the existing "old" TD load utilities. One of many other advantages is the ability to move data without landing it to disk (see this article). There are also other post / blogs which give good introductions to TPT.

But as TPT needs a different scripting syntax it is sometimes not easy to get a start on this great tool. Therefore we developed and attached (zip download) a wrapper-like java tool which should help to get a first impression on the new capabilities without the need to care about TPT syntax.

The main functionality is to copy one table from one system to a second system in a Fastexport to pipe to Fastload style. The tool checks the table DDL, generates the TPT script and execute the needed scripts.
