The Db Loader application is a tool which converts CIF data into a form that is loadable into a variety of relational database engines (MySQL, Oracle, Sybase and DB2). The tool produces all of the necessary SQL and auxilary configuration files to create and load tables in the relational database. The mapping of information between mmCIF data files and the relational schema is controlled by a versatile configuration file. Many relational schemas can be supported for any particular mmCIF data representation. This tool will also produce XML equivalent to any mapped relational schema.
