You need an engine to read the files.  The engine typically resides on the same machine as the data but an application must be able to access an engine to read the data.

I have an old engine 6.15 but have news files from later version and I have problem to read the new files maybe because that the old engine doesn’t support them so I wonder if it is good direction to try a direct reading without odbc and if any one have an example to java code or vb code for direct connect


Thank you a lot
This is my final project and I m desperate and I m willing to pay for solution

Thank you

You can download a newer version of the engine from www.pervasive.com. The current version is V8. Older versions of the engine will not read newer files.  
As far as performance, the Btrieve API is the fastest way to get data from Btrieve files.  As far as using ODBC, you'll need DDFs too.  THere are samples on the Pervasive web site for both Java using JCL and JDBC and Btrieve API.  You'll need to know the record structure to use any of these methods.
