Migration From 1 6 To 1 8


The database file format has changed so it is necessary to export database to XML file using version 1.5.5 and import the xml in a new database using the 1.8 version. This can be done easily with the ODBExplorer graphical application.


Some changes have been done to the ODB interface :

  • The Object ID is now an object,it is not a long anymore. So the methods getObjectId and getObjectById now work with OID interface instead of long.
  • The store method now returns the ODB OID of the new created object.
  • The delete method on interface ODB now throw an Exception instead of IOException
  • The getObjects method now return an object of type Objects (wich implements Collection) instead of a list. So the iterator pattern should be used to get objects from the return collection.
