XML and NET Based GUI for Heterogeneous Database Backup System

Tayyeba Minhas, Satish Anamalamudi, Xu Ning, and Minglu Jin

Abstract—In order to ensure that data stored on a medium such as a disk is not lost or damaged, a copy of that data is stored on another medium. Should the original data be lost or damaged, then the copy may be accessed to reproduce the original data. This paper explains a novel technique to backup and restore DBMS and all types of files and directory through XML and NET. With proposed Solution, user data will be safely protected from accidental delete, overwrite and viruses. Moreover, proposed methodology is compatible with both oracle and SQL Servers. In this approach, we use XML and Ionic zip file manager to deploy the application. Database structure and metadata of the documents are stored within XML format i.e. all the files and folders are stored using Extensible Mark-up language (XML) instead of data base. With XML, intended data will be created, stored and even transport by defining set of rules with encoding document and proposed algorithm. The main advantage with proposed work is database administrator can use simple XML encoded files to create and backup data from heterogeneous databases (oracle, SQL etc.) at any place instead of using complex tools and interfaces.

Index Terms—Database management system (DBMS), extensible mark-up language (XML), graphical user inter face (GUI).
