The database schema migration with use XML transporting layer

Michał Kwapisz, Tomasz Sapelniak, Adam Pelikant


The article describes method of the automatic transfer of relational databases schemas. Files XML were applied, which permit on free formation of document structure. The aim of investigations was creation of effective algorithm for automatic data migration which would guarantee correct target data structure as well as safety during processing. Works were guided in environment Microsoft Windows 2003 with utilization the engine of database ORACLE 10g.
