Read Oracle dump files from your applications

Have you ever needed to access data stored in Oracle dump file without having live instance of Oracle server? The problem is that Oracle dump format has no public specification and there is no way to extract data from such files except the standard Oracle IMP tool requiring connection to Oracle server.

Intelligent Converters has investigated Oracle dump format and released set of tools to read it and to migrate data to the most popular data sources. This is OraDump Export Kit, a product to convert Oracle dump files into MS SQL, Microsoft Access, Microsoft Excel, MySQL and Comma Separated Values (CSV).

Key features:

Besides the end user product, Intelligent Converters has built OraDump Export API for developers, so they could integrate capabilities of reading Oracle dump files and export data into different formats in their applications. Using this library software developers can automate export data from Oracle dump files into MySQL, MS Access, SQL Server, MS Excel and comma separated values (CSV) via just a few lines of code.

OraDump Export API is implemented in a DLL file and exposes all conversion features through the corresponding COM interfaces. So, you can use it from any language supporting COM technology (C++, C#, Java, Visual Basic, etc). You do not have to be an IT expert to use it. Each interface is very simple and clear to understand.

Here is example of using OraDump Export API from C# to migrate two tables from Oracle dump file to SQL Server:
