FOSS to the rescue

What to do when a client sends you multiple 500Meg DBF files and you want to move them into PostgreSQL? Why you find a FOSS solution of course.

Seems to be a problem for us in the program seeing all the DBF files in the dbf folder but it works if you list them in the properties file. Pretty darn quick, runs in Java so multiplatform, source code included in case you want to change it, and it gives you both a DDL and a data file.

Life is good…
