Migrating data from SQLite to IBM DB2

This guide will show you how to easily migrate data from SQLite to IBM DB2 through a few simple steps with ESF Database Migration Toolkit, simplifying the complex migration processes and saving you valuable time.

SQLite vs. IBM DB2:

  • SQLite is a lightweight, serverless, self-contained, and open-source relational database management system. It's designed for embedded systems, mobile applications, and small to medium-sized database-driven websites. Unlike client-server database management systems, SQLite is serverless, meaning it doesn't require a separate server process to operate. Instead, it reads and writes directly to ordinary disk files. This makes it easy to set up and use, with no configuration or administration required. Despite its simplicity, SQLite supports most of the SQL standard and offers powerful features like ACID transactions, triggers, and support for indexes. It's widely used in mobile apps, desktop applications, and embedded systems due to its reliability, efficiency, and small footprint.
  • IBM DB2 is a high-performance relational database management system (RDBMS) developed by IBM, designed to handle large volumes of data and support complex transactions. It offers robust features for data management, security, and scalability, making it suitable for enterprises of all sizes. DB2 is known for its efficiency in processing SQL queries, its advanced analytics capabilities, and its integration with various platforms, including cloud environments. It supports a range of operating systems such as Windows, UNIX, and Linux, and provides tools for database automation, optimization, and administration.

      SQLite
  • In "Choose a Data Source" dialog, choose "IBM DB2";

    • Enter the server name (default is "localhost") and port (default is "50000").
    • Enter the username (default is "db2admin") and password.
    • Enter the name of the source DB2 database in the "Database" field.
    • Select the DB2 schema name (use the "Refresh" button to view a list of available schemas).

  • In "Select source Tables(s) & View(s)" dialog;

    • Select the tables or views you want to migrate.
      Select Tables&Views
    • You can access the table options or adjust the table structure by clicking the "..." button.
      Transform
    • In the "Field Mapping" option, you can customize the destination table's fields, such as field name, data type, default value, comment, and more. You also have the option to choose the data transfer method, including Overwrite Table, Empty Data, Append Data, or Skip Table, or even filter the data before transferring it.
  • In "Execution" Dialog;

    • You can start the migration process by clicking "Submit". The toolkit will efficiently and seamlessly migrate your data from SQLite to IBM DB2 without the need for manual intervention.
      Execute
    • To keep track of the migration process, you can access the full migration log by clicking "Browse Log". This will provide you with a comprehensive view of the entire migration, including any potential issues and their resolutions.
    • To save time in the future, you can save the migration settings as a job file by clicking "Save as job". This allows you to quickly reload the migration job at a later time or run the migration job using the command-prompt by typing "dmtc.exe --help". The command-prompt provides you with a full list of parameters to customize the migration process to your specific needs.
  • Finished!

    Upon completion, the toolkit will generate a comprehensive migration report, providing you with all the information you need to verify the accuracy and completeness of the migration process. So, you can sit back and relax while the program carries out the task efficiently. Should you have any inquiries or recommendations, don't hesitate to reach out to us. We're always happy to help.
