Using Java with an existing application using 6.15

Using Java with an existing application using 6.15

Using Java with an existing application using 6.15

I want to export data dynamically out of an existing commercial application that uses btrieve version 6.15. In other words, while the commercial application is using these files, I want to write changes to the data to an external sql database.

I plan to use BTSearch32, a utility, to construct the DDF files.

My next step will be to write a java program that will read the btrieve files from the application using the 6.15 version and write this data to a SQL database.

My question is: What pervasive product should I use to do this?  I'd like to use JDBC in Java if possible.  If I use pervasive.sql v8, will v8 be able to share the data files with the commercial application?  Is pervasive.sql 2000 a viable alternative?

What is the best way product for my need and will it support my plans?
