Source database is also known as Interbase, Borland Interbase, Embarcadero Interbase (related files: ib, gdb)
Target database is also known as Oracle (related files: db)
The conversion of Interbase to Oracle database conversion using Full Convert is simple and has to do a few quick steps:
When we start Full Convert, you will notice a welcome panel with links for common tasks. Let"s start a new conversion.
Click the Create new conversion link or click the New button in the ribbon above.
Initial screen shows you that Full Convert will automatically detect your database if you don"t know which one do you have. Of course, if you do know your database, do select it from the list on the left.
We will choose Interbase from the list of available database formats.
In the server field we need to type the name or IP address of the Interbase server. If you have Interbase installed on the local machine, where Full Convert is running, you can leave the server field blank. Username and password we don't need to touch in most cases as Full Convert pre-fills the "magic" values which open all Interbase databases.
If Interbase is on this machine, we can now simply click ellipsis (...) button to select GDB or IB database file (file extension depends on the version of Interbase). If the file is on remote machine, you need to type the path to the file as remote server sees it. So, if the file is in C:\t\ folder on your server, you need to write the full path, for example: C:\t\filename.GDB.
List on the left shows all the databases which can be filled with your source database data. Select the one you need and fill-in required parameters.
We will choose Oracle from the source database engines list. We can connect to our Oracle in two ways. If we have Oracle Client installed, simply typing the service name and specifying login info is all we need.
However, when you don't want to install 100MB+ of OCI installation, we have a nice surprise! We can connect to Oracle using a direct TCP/IP connection. No OCI required. In addition to database name and login info, we would just need to specify server name or IP - and done.
Here you can see how many tables will be converted. To start conversion right away, click on the Convert! button. To show contents of target database without converting, click on the Explore button. Use that to inspect target database prior to conversion, or to save the conversion project for later before even converting the first time.
Click the Convert! button to get started.
Conversion is highly-optimized to run as fast as possible, yet provides top-notch reliability. Huge tables are converted in small chunks at a time, preserving memory and ensuring that your computer stays fast and responsive.
Here you will see basic conversion statistics, such as number of tables and records copied to target database.
If there were any warnings or errors during conversion, you will be able to examine them in detail.
Finally, complete SQL log is available for you if you need it. This feature can be enabled in project options screen.
