We are finally beginning our transition from Pervasive 11.3 to MySQL 8 using Dataflex 19.1. It’s been hard won, there are 93 data files and 6GB+ of compressed data. We would love to do this gradually by converting a few files that work together constantly, at a time. This means our DF exe’s will be simultaneously opening, closing, reading, writing, rereading and unlocking pervasive data on one server via the latest DAW btrieve driver and MySQL data on another server via the latest DAW ODBC driver.

The benefit is that we can wade in gradually to this great new MySQL world. I’d love to hear your experiences. Does this work? Work well? I want to know if we are going to be sorry. Should we do this instead in one big jump?
