BTR2SQL: BTRIEVE TO SQL SERVER
Recognizing the growing demand for MS SQL Server® on the Windows platform and the hurdles that developers using Pervasive's Btrieve® and Pervasive.SQL® engines face in running their application with MS SQL Server data source, Mertech has created a middleware solution designed to:
- Alleviate the costs associated with migrating applications working against existing Btrieve/Pervasive data sources to MS SQL Server databases.
- Provide developers with a cost-effective, efficient, and platform-independent solution to use their existing code with MS SQL Server database servers.
- Create the opportunity for the developer to leverage existing applications with an MS SQL Server back end immediately.
- Accomplish all of the above without compromising the stability or speed of the application.
Mertech accomplishes these objectives with a high performance database driver designed to transparently translate calls made to the Btrieve and Pervasive.SQL transactional API into SQL statements. Whether used for MS SQL Server or any other databases, these database drivers replace the existing Btrieve's dynamic link libraries and effectively intercept and relay application commands to the SQL data source as optimized, efficient SQL statements.
Mertech's database driver uses the SQL Server Native Client programming interface for communicating and accessing the MS SQL Server database. This is a direct connection to the server and does not require any ODBC drivers or DSN entries.
Supports MS SQL Server and SQL Server Express 2005 and above
