4D to PostgreSQL tools

P: n/a
Hi all,

Someone asked me today if there are tools to migrate a 4D database to
PostgreSQL. Any clue?

Some googling turned up a tool to go the other way round and the
archives got me an unanswered post about migrating from 4D to
PostgreSQL, so I guess there's not much chance...

Cheers.

There are no direct tools at all.

There is a connectivity tool, PostgreSQL for 4D, available from Exenevex at:

What exactly are you having trouble with in doing the migration? I ask as the process is simple enough that a tool for doing the job is really not needed...

Yes, I found that with google.

I personally have no trouble, just forwarding a question. I think the
person wanted to know if there was some tool where they could just take
their 4D dump, transmogrify it to a PostgreSQL dump and voilą! But if
you say that the process is simple enough that no tool is warranted, I
consider that a valid answer and will pass it on. Thanks.

Bye.
