    Easy conversion from DataFlex

    Flex2SQL’s plug-in architecture ensures your application effortlessly works with a SQL backend. Migrate your DataFlex database to SQL (creating tables, indexes, relationships, and other components) using Flex2SQL’s GUI migration tool. Post-migration, Flex2SQL’s database driver works alongside your application, connecting your app to your new backend and translating DataFlex API calls into optimized SQL queries.

    About

    Developed using MySQL’s C API, Mertech’s ISDBC driver for MySQL provides complete support for various table handlers, file creation parameters, support for uppercase or lowercase object names and fast loading of data into tables using text files. DataFlex programs can take advantage of MyISAM tables which offer low-level ISAM access.

     

    Requirements

    To be able to run a DataFlex program from any version of DataFlex, the MySQL client library, libmysql.dll in Windows or libmysql.so in Linux should be placed in the same directory as Mertech’s driver and license file.

    Furthermore, since Mertech’s product is not open source and does not follow the GPL licensing, users of MySQL with Mertech’s driver will have to purchase a commercial version of MySQL. Users are advised to check MySQL’s website for more information on purchasing commercial licenses. Please see Mertech’s software license agreement for using MySQL commercial licenses.
