[oXygen-user] import old Notebook database to XML?

Hello Ken,

For such an old database probably it is too much to ask for a JDBC 
driver. But if you can find an ODBC driver the conversion is very easy: 
the ODBC driver connects to the JDBC-ODBC bridge which can be set in 
<oXygen/> as the driver that fetches the data for the database import 
operation (menu File -> Import -> Database data).

If the Notebook database is able to export data as plain text another 
way of conversion is to export the data as text and develop a custom 
XSLT 2.0 stylesheet for the conversion to XML.

Best regards,
