License:LGPL v3
Platforms:Platform independent - Java

The Database Preservation Toolkit allows conversion between Database formats, including connection to live systems, for purposes of digitally preserving databases. The toolkit allows conversion of live or backed-up databases into preservation formats such as DBML, an XML format created for the purpose of database preservation. The toolkit also allows conversion of the preservation formats back into live systems to allow the full functionality of databases. For example, it supports a specialized export into MySQL, optimized for PhpMyAdmin, so the database can be fully experimented using a web interface.


At the current version (1.0.0) the following database management systems import/export modules are supported:

  • MySQL
  • MS SQL Server
  • MS Access
  • Oracle (untested)
  • PostreSQL
  • DBML (Database Markup Language)

Additionally it is possible to export a database management system to a specific database SQL using the following export modules:

  • PostgreSQLFile
  • MySQLFile
  • SQLServerFile
  • GenericSQLFile

More import/export modules are being developed at the current time being DB2 one of them. Besides, it is also being developed the modules to support the SIARD database preservation format formats:SIARD. (2014-03-11)
