Data Loader Override FullImage, Thumbnail scenario fix or any other columns exclusion

This blog explain a scenario where  FULLIMAGE and THUMBNAIL are overridden in table CATGRPDESC even when the CSV files is not passing the values for these fields.
This can be used to apply column level exclusions for any other component similarly so these fields are not overridden.


Pasting a block where the change is required..this XML has much more business object configurations:
 <_config:DataLoader className="">
    <_config:table name="CATGRPDESC" columns="FULLIMAGE,THUMBNAIL" />
    <_config:DataReader className="" firstLineIsHeader="true" useHeaderAsColumnName="true" />

Sample RunProductLoad.bat for testing, make sure the path for wc-dataload-catalog-group.xml is correctly done as it is pointing to relative below:

@echo off
cd "C:\IBM\WCDE_ENT70\bin"
call dataload ..\workspace\DataLoad\dataload\CustomDataLoad\MasterCatalog\wc-dataload-catalog-group.xml -DXmlValidation="false" -DComponent=CustomDataLoad\MasterCatalog -DFeedHome=C:\IBM\WCDE_ENT70\workspace\DataLoad\dataload -DWCConfigHome=C:\IBM\WCDE_ENT70\workspace\WC\xml\config -DCVConfigHome=C:\IBM\WCDE_ENT70\workspace\DataLoad\dataload\Config

Sample CSV file: CatalogGroup.csv, GroupIdentifier points to CATGROUP.IDENTIFIER and ParentGroupIdentifier is the parent from CATGRPREL

Start date 2013-01-28 16:40:42 
36010,310010,FALSE,0,Sample & Decors,Sample & Decors,1

If you have spaces before of GroupIdentifier or ParentGroupIdentifier: It causes this issue below:

Exception message:
The ID was not resolved for the table CATGROUP with the unique index data [  310010, 7000000000000000051].
Stack trace: The ID was not resolved for the table CATGROUP with the unique index data [  310010, 7000000000000000051].
