The migration tool for MySQL seems possible... Any body interested... We may not win the prize but at least itís a project to work on... who knows...

Your thoughts on this.... a cprogramming.com team... and for ppl who are thinking that that this is another cboard team thingie thatís going fail... I am dead serious about this.

Sounds like an awesome idea, I'd be more than willing to help out in any way. I'm getting the 32m ingress documentation now and I'll look through it as much as I can.

err, question:
do we HAVE to have linux to be able to help out with this? I'm noticing in the developer's area it says:
"For instructions on building and installing Ingres on Linux please read the Guide to Building and Installing Ingres r3 on Linux (http://opensource.ca.com/projects/ingres/DeveloperZone/linuxbuilding). "
but doesn't say anything about building and installing on windows.

or are we supposed to make the software to convert the database ourselves, from scratch?

well what they want is some tool that will migrate the database from for example MySql to ingress.. so all the tables, data, triggers, transactions etc etc have to be migrated along with the creation of proper ODBC handles for the present applications to connect to the new database.....

This is not the toughest job but doing it efficiently is.. I am not sure about the features supported by ingress but doing it for MySql should not be a probelm since it does not support some of the advance features of Oracle which we do no need to bother converting to ingress equvalent....

any more ppl intrested... do PM me please...

and sorry for posting this on the wrong board in the firstplace.. did not notice the new board..

do both of those programs have xml data migration built into them? I had the notion that ingres did, but not sure about the other...if they did...that'd be the easiest way.
