Database Build

A 'build' of a mine is a complete data loading run starting from an empty database. It is recommended that you use the project_build script. The build script runs the data integration and any post-processing steps.

Each mine has an integrate project that reads the project.xml file and builds the data warehouse. This steps through each source defined in the project.xml file and transates the specified data from a source format and loads it into the production database. Data integration is governed by primary keys, any conflicts are resolved by a priorities config file.
