    SQL Batch Move option, part 2

    Dear Users,

    Export and Import of Database data with LimagitoX Transfer Tool

    In version v2019.8.18.0 e added quite some features to the new Batch Move option (more ideas always welcome). We’ve added some screenshots to this post.

    Selection of the new Batch Move option is the SQL as Source / Destination setup.

    Selection and setup of the Database we’ll use during the export or import of the DB data.

    Select of the Mode we’ll use during the import of the data into the database (SQL as Destination).

    Setup of the database export to text options (SQL as Source). In this case DB data will be exported to a txt file (csv).

    Select where we’ll get the data from (SQL as Source option) or insert to (SQL as Destination option).

    You can choose between a table name or use SQL.

    If you have any questions about the new features, please let us know.

    Regards,

    SQL Batch Move option

    Dear Users

    On our todo list, for this new SQL destination, is to add a ‘Batch Move’ option. This option will handle a csv text data file and will insert the data content to a database.

    In version v2019.8.17.0 a first relase of this ‘Batch Move’ option was added to SQL as Source and Destination. It is the first release so many features still need to be added to this option.

    At the moment:

    SQL as Source: Batch Move will get the data from the selected database and will output this to csv file. We  automatically recognize the data source format but also will add an options later for a manual setup.

    SQL as Destination: Batch Move will take the data from the source (csv) file and will insert this data into the Database.

    You can choose between SQLite, Microsoft SQL, PostgreSQL, MySQL and MariaDB as Database. Don’t forget to set the Table Name in the Batch Move tab.

     

    Feedback would be much appreciated.

    Regards,
    Limagito Team

    Connecting to a MySQL / MariaDB Database

    Dear Users,

    MySQL: The world’s most popular open source database.

    MariaDB: One of the most popular database servers. Made by the original developers of MySQL. Guaranteed to stay open source.

    We’ve added MySQL / MariaDB as Database Connection option. This connection option is now available for:

    – Database Logging option (added in version v2019.8.17.0)
    – SQL as Source option (added in version v2019.8.17.0)
    – SQL as Destination option (added in version v2019.8.17.0)

    We are using a database framework called FireDAC. When connecting to a database the framework needs a client library (driver) suited for the type of database it is trying to connect. This client library needs to be installed by the user of our File Mover, we don’t deliver any database client drivers. The database client library for x86 or x64 are not the same so be sure to check which version of LimagitoX you are using (x86 or x64).

    If the framework doesn’t find the library files then it will popup a message like:

    The message gives you an indication that some dll could not be found. In the MySQL / MariaDB connection error above it could no locate libmysql.dll. As previously mentioned, the dll’s you need are different for x86 and x64.

    >This is what we did in order to connect successfully to a MySQL / MariaDB database in the x86 version of LimagitoX:

    1. We downloaded the zipped Binaries of version 10 (mariadb-10.4.7-win32.zip) @ https://downloads.mariadb.org/mariadb/10.4.7/#os_group=windows
    2. Unzipped the following file from the mariadb-10.4.7-win32\lib subfolder: libmariadb.dll
    3. Renamed it to libmysql.dll and moved the file to the 32 bit program folder of LimagitoX File Mover: C:\Program Files (x86)\LimagitoX File Mover

    >This is what we did in order to connect successfully to a PostgreSQL database in the x64 version of LimagitoX:

    1. We downloaded the zipped Binaries of version 10 (mariadb-10.4.7-winx64.zip) @ https://downloads.mariadb.org/mariadb/10.4.7/#os_group=windows
    2. Unzipped the following files from the mariadb-10.4.7-winx64\lib subfolder: libmariadb.dll
    3. Renamed it to libmysql.dll and  moved the file to the 64bit program folder of LimagitoX File Mover: C:\Program Files\LimagitoX File Mover

    Microsoft SQL Server vs. MySQL
