I have an old version of the 3.3 engine that I think is used in Graffiti 1.2. I can use that to build a quick pack utility that people could run on their database, of course they have to know to do that before their site locks up on them.
I willing to provide the tools to anyone working on the project, and to help with the process in any way I can. But I can't take all the support requests on at my company, we are just too small to that this type of burden for something we didn't do.
I am sure many of you are also in small companies and realize that the economy has not been kind to small business in general lately.
I can provide you guys with an ability to use the engine directly, and to pack the database. What else do you need? Would you like a tool that just extracts everything in the database out to an XML file for migration to something else?
We are actually getting ready to release a new tool for database migration to and from several different vendors, but VDB3 is not currently in that supported list.
What would be the best way to provide such a tool? A simple API access to SaveVdb3ToXML( path ) - something that is really easy like that could be done through an API quickly. But I have no idea how to build the Graffiti pages to show this API
to the users.
I wish it were as simple as upgrading the current code to use vdb4 (VistaDB 4).
