The JDBC Importer provides a consistent mechanism of importing data from files into a JDBC compliant database. Currently, each database vendor has their own utility or command that must be learned. Additionally, there are some limitations and caveats about the data format. The JDBC Importer aims to define one interface and config file that can be used to import data into any database. Also, the JDBC Importer will be extensible and customizable in order to accommodate any type of data format.
