Quick Start

Let's set up our project by clicking the New project button. It will start a project wizard. Once we go through wizard, we can immediately compare our database or even replicate them in one pass.

We can also opt to save the project for later use. Such saved projects appear in the list of recent projects below and can be opened with a single click.

For this short tutorial, we will replicate SQL Server's demo database Adventure Works to MySQL.

Page 1 of 3: Source database

We will select SQL Server from the list of supported databases.

Page 2 of 3: Target database

We will select MySQL from the list of supported databases and fill in correct connection information. If target database doesn't exist, Full Convert will prompt you if you would like it to create it for you.

You can now immediately compare tables or even replicate data right away.

Comparing data

Replication completed

Let's compare databases again to make sure there are no more differences between them.

We now have MySQL database perfectly mirroring our source SQL Server database. At any time in the future, when we want to bring them in sync again and replicate changes made in SQL Server database, we can just run the replication again.
