Which Utilities are Used in Ispirer MnMTK to Perform Import

When migrating from one database into another database using SQLWays Wizard tool, it is possible to execute import process automatically. To do that you need to know about the utilities that will be used to in this process.

SQLWays Wizard generates a .bat script for each converted object. In such script you can find a command to the utility that will be used to perform import process. During import process the tool will just run this command to the native utility and then the utility itself will connect to the target database and try to import the converted sql code into it.

For each target database SQLWays Wizard generates commands to their native utilities. Please also note that SQLWays Wizard doesn't use any third-part tools or utilities to perform import. It generates commands only for the native utilities of the target database that are provided by the RDBMS vendors.

In order to generate correct command lines to the required utilities, in the “Bin Directory” option we need to provide a path to the folder that contains required utilities. This option can be found on the “Specify Import Options” page of SQLWays Wizard Tool:


Below you can find the information about different databases and native utilities that will be used by SQLWays Wizard tool and where you can find them.

To perform import into Oracle database, in the Bin directory Option we need to specify a path to the folder which contains sqlldr.exe and sqlplus.exe utilities. By default these utilities are located in the directory like: c:\app\[user_name]\product\[DB_Version]\client_1\BIN\. Otherwise you can find them in the directory specified during the installation process of the Oracle database.

If there are no such utilities on the machine where migration process is performed, you need to install Oracle Client. You can download the Oracle client from Oracle official website using this link: Download Oracle Client.

Please note that you need to choose “Administrator” installation type of the client to get all the required utilities installed on your machine.

Ispirer Note:
