Convert SQL Scripts in Batch Mode

Our tool allows you to convert application source files from Command Line or a shell script.

Open a command line window by running Start → Ispirer Toolkit 10 → Ispirer Toolkit Command Line or Start → Run → cmd.exe

To convert SQL scripts run sqlways.exe as follows:

sqlways.exe /f=d:\sybase_scripts\*.* /source=SybaseASE /target=MySQL /dir=d:\mysql_scripts

Note: Ispirer Toolkit Command Line options are case insensitive and their order is insignificant.

  • /F specifies the location of the source script files

You can specify a full path, a list or a template (*.*, *.sql i.e.)

  • /SOURCE specifies the source database type
  • /TARGET specifies the target database type

The list of available database types:

  • Oracle - Oracle database
