Examining the Oracle Dump Files

If you’ve ever wanted to get data saved in Oracle dump file with no live instance of Oracle server? The thing is that Oracle dump format doesn’t have public specification and there’s no method to extract data from such files except the normal IMP or IMPDP tools requiring connection to Oracle database server.

Intelligent Converters software development company has researched format of Oracle export files and introduced set of tools to export it in to the most desired data sources. This can be referred to as OraDump Export Kit, selection of tools to export Oracle dump files into MySQL, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL, Microsoft Access, Microsoft Excel and CSV. Key features:

– direct reading from dump file, no Oracle components are needed

– support all versions of Oracle dump files

– encrypted and parallel export dump files are supported

– customization of types mapping allows to improve name and type of any column, exclude particular columns from conversion

– no limitations on file size

– fast algorithm of direct reading can process more than 1GB per hour on an average modern system

Furthermore, this product can store conversion settings into profile to be used in next runs. Command line support allows to automate and schedule the process of export from Oracle dump files into other data sources.

Aside from the consumer products Intelligent Converters has produced OraDump Export API for developers, so that they can integrate capabilities of reading Oracle dump files and export data into different formats of their applications. By using this library software developers can run export from Oracle dump files into MySQL, MS Access, MS SQL, MS Excel and comma separated values (CSV) via just a couple of lines of code.

OraDump Export API is implemented as a dynamically loaded library (DLL) file and reveals all conversion features throughout the matching COM interfaces. So, it can be used from any language supporting COM technology (C++, C#, Java, Visual Basic, etc). There’s no need to be an IT expert before you can use it. Each interface is simple and clear to understand.

As every of Intelligent Converters products, both OraDump Export Kit and OraDump Export API are provided with 24/7 support and 12 months subscription for updates (customers receive latest version of the software free of charge during 12 months after purchasing).
