Acu4GL makes use of cursor caching to process Oracle RDBMS data efficiently. A cursor is a prepared query, saved in a parameterized format. When a like function is to be performed on a different record (such as a GET NEXT), the task can be performed by executing the saved query with new parameters. This improves performance by eliminating the need to regenerate the query. You may need to adjust the number of cursors available to your COBOL application.
