Conversion methods

Using our Java tool

Download the RebaseData client Java tool . To convert your database using RebaseData, run the following command:

                    java -jar client-0.0.5.jar convert --output-format=mariadb database-files.. output-dir/
Using CURL

Let's imagine we want to convert the EMPLOYEE table of the paradoxReader's sample files. We would have to upload all files starting with "EMPLOYEE", namely EMPLOYEE.DB, EMPLOYEE.F10, EMPLOYEE.PX and EMPLOYEE.VAL. The curl command would look like this:

curl -F files[]=@EMPLOYEE.DB -F files[]=@EMPLOYEE.F10 -F files[]=@EMPLOYEE.PX -F files[]=@EMPLOYEE.VAL '' -o
The file will contain a MariaDB file, one for each table in the set of input files. If something went wrong, contains the error message.


How long does it take?

The conversion process takes between 15 seconds and multiple minutes. It depends on the size of the database.
