Database Migration provides a tool to migrate Sybase databases into PostgreSQL databases. The solution is using a very flexible method on retrieving database structures from Sybase to PostgreSQL.

Virtually the database migration can happen from any other relational database system to PostgreSQL. Due to the flexibility of the solution the target database can be any other relational database systems like Microsoft SQL, MySQL, Oracle, DB2. The source database is extracted into an XML structure, so this creates a very powerful and adaptable mechanism for data migration.

In order to keep the database migration as flexible as possible and cross-platform, the database migration tool was developed in Java, with an intermediate layer based on XML.
