Question: What is the exact difference betwwen Join,Merge and Lookup Stage??

Answer: The exact difference between Join,Merge and lookup is

The three stages differ mainly in the memory they use

DataStage doesn't know how large your data is, so cannot make an informed choice whether to combine data using a join stage or a lookup stage. Here's how to decide which to use:

if the reference datasets are big enough to cause trouble, use a join. A join does a high-speed sort on the driving and reference datasets. This can involve I/O if the data is big enough, but the I/O is all highly optimized and sequential. Once the sort is over the join processing is very fast and never involves paging or other I/O

Unlike Join stages and Lookup stages, the Merge stage allows you to specify several reject links as many as input links.
