2. EMBED Package Questions
|1. How to know the detailed version information
of DBF2Oracle package?
check that MANIFEST.MF file in jar file.
|2. Can I use it in an iSeries OS/400 IBM machine
that has Java 1.4 running in it?
The DBF2Oracle packages can run on any platform with Java VM, which includes Microsoft Windows, Novell Netware, OS2, UNIX, and LINUX. It supports Personal Java, JDK1.0.X, JDK1.1.X, JDK1.2.X, JDK1.3.X, JDK1.4.X and JDK1.5.X. It supports JDBC1.2, JDBC2.0, and JDBC3.0 now.
|3. What is difference between the DBF2Oracle
Package, Embedded(WithDrv) Package, Embedded(WithoutDrv) Package?
The DBF2Oracle Package is a GUI application , and the Embedded package is a package which can load into Oracle database(Oracle8i or upper). If you're exporting data by GUI application or a configuration file, you should use the DBF2Oracle Package . If you want to export data more quickly and more flexibly, you can use the DBF2Oracle Embedded Package.
As the tips by the name, Embedded(WithDrv) Package contains the HXTT DBF JDBC package, and Embedded(WithoutDrv) Package doesn't.
|4. What's the difference between the
professional DBF2Oracle Package and the enterprise DBF2Oracle Package?
The standard DBF2Oracle Package can export table data to Oracle from dBASE, Foxbase, Foxpro, and VFP.
The enterprise DBF2Oracle Package contains the function of standard DBF2Oracle Package, besides, it can export data accord view or a dynamic query, and execute export operation from a configuration file saved by prior export operation, and loaded into Oracle(8i or upper) for build a procedure to export data.
|5. What causes the 'No suitable driver' SQLException?
This error usually occurs during a call to DriverManager.getConnection(). The cause can be failing to load the appropriate JDBC driver before calling getConnection(), or specifying an invalid JDBC URL that isn't recognized by your JDBC driver. If you are exporting data by GUI application or a configuration file, you should check the Oracle JDBC package exists in the directory in your driver config, and check your JDBC url. If you are using Embedded(WithoutDrv) Package to export data in Oracle database, this error happens is because you haven't load the HXTT DBF JDBC package in Oracle database.
|6. What's the diffirence between the HXTT DBF
JDBC package contained in DataExp 2007 program and the standard HXTT DBF
The HXTT DBF JDBC package contained in DataExp 2007 program can only used in DataExp 2007 program and have some functional limit, so you cann't use it for other usage.
There are no other difference between the two package. They can accept the same jdbc url, and connect properties, and operate data, etc.
|7. Can export a table data to a non-exists table?
Yes. This package will auto create the destination table. In the GUI application, you can change the table structure when need creating the table.
|8. I would like to export data from our application, instead of load it in Oracle database or GUI application. can can do so?|
|Yeah. You can do so if you buy the Enterprise DBF2Oracle product . Maybe you should pay the attention to the licence.|
There is a class named com.hxtt.data.export.advance.DBF2Oracle in the Embedded(WithDrv) Package and Embedded(WithoutDrv) Package contains a series method to export data.
All public method please see here.
|9. May I execute export operation at a assign time?|
|Yeah. You can execute export operation from a configuration file saved by prior export operation. So, you can use the Task Scheduler(in Windows) or Crontab(in Unix/Linux) to execute export operation.|
|Embed Package Questions|
|1. What's the Embed Package?|
|Embed Package is a jar file which can load into Oracle database and execute
export operation by Oracle procedure, or can used in your java program to
execute export operation.
The Embedded(WithDrv) Package contains the HXTT DBF JDBC package, and Embedded(WithoutDrv) Package doesn't.
If you have bought the the HXTT DBF JDBC package, you can use the Embedded(WithoutDrv) Package to execute export operation. or else, you should the Embedded(WithDrv) Package to execute export operation.
|2. How do I load the Embed Package(With HXTT DBF JDBC Driver) into Oracle Database and execute export operation in Oracle database?|
|You can do as follows.|
|In windows Command or Shell(Linux/Unix), run the follows command to load
the embed package into Oracle database.
loadjava -resolve -synonym -verbose -user username/password@OracleSid EMBDBF2Oracle_WithDRV.jar
Then, you should create the follows procedure,
sourceschemaname in varchar2,
targetdirectory in varchar2,
targettablename in varchar2,
targetconnprops in varchar2
as language java name 'com.hxtt.data.export.advance.DBF2Oracle.exportTable%(
Then, you can use the procedure exportTable to export table/view date to DBase4 table.
|3. How do I load the Embed Package(Without HXTT DBF JDBC Driver) into Oracle Database and execute export operation in Oracle database?|
