Subject Re: Using one template datamap for many databases
Date Wed, 01 Oct 2008 18:41:31 GMT
Hi Jesper, I wrote that DD copying utility a while back and it
definitely works with multiple databases (I had 7 databases with the
same schema) at the same time -- at least it did under Cayenne 1.2 and
2.0.  What version of Cayenne are you using?
