Subject [jira] Commented: (CAY-808) FoxPro adapter
Date Sun, 10 Jan 2010 11:05:57 GMT


George Stan commented on CAY-808:

Wouldn't be easier just to use some tool to migrate the data from Foxpro to another more "actual"
database (one that Cayenne has complete support for)? 
There are quite a few tools that convert or import Foxpro file formats.

Besides, if I remember, the file format has changed during the versions, so it would be required
to support different versions of Foxpro and VisualFoxpro as well - and this would be just
too much.

fish out basic fields.
> Currently all committed Cayenne adapters include support for reverse engineering and
schema creation. I think that's overkill for MS Access and FoxPro. FoxPro and MS Access would
only be used in applications for bug-by-bug compatibility with some existing application and
not as a backend for Cayenne if the developer has any say in the matter.
> Couldn't Cayenne support adapters of two types: full and simple? Simple being only basic
read/write access?
