BTR2SQL: BTRIEVE FOR MAGIC
Magic developers are able to rapidly develop complex, scalable enterprise client/server business applications utilizing the powerful Magic development framework. Magic developers are also able to currently deploy their applications with different databases including Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server using Magic’s gateways for each of these databases.
Although Magic developers are able to choose a specific database to develop and deploy with, supporting multiple databases poses a special challenge, especially for ISVs who want to support multiple databases in their market segment. To support multiple databases, Magic developers need to maintain multiple CTL files, create tables in each environment and follow different development methods for supporting each database.
Mertech’s plug-in middleware products can help alleviate the difficulties associated with supporting multiple back-ends. Magic developers can now support Oracle, MS SQL Server and MySQL database back-ends using the same control files with minimal or no changes.
For more details on how you can run your Magic application with Oracle, MS SQL and MySQL, please read our whitepaper Convert Magic to Oracle and MS SQL or contact Mertech technical support.
