2383223 - Slowness when when calling GetExtendedAttribute in a VBS - SAP PD


  • Calling GetExtendedAttribute() in a VBScript to retrieve the value of an XDB (DBMS definition file) extended attribute lasts a very long time when the Physical Data Model (PDM) targets Oracle 12c.
  • Performance is a lot better when the extended attribute is defined in a smaller XDB or XEM (Extended Model Definition).
