We're on IBM's UniVerse DB 10.1.    I've written programs to update tables in an SQL DB from universe data but now I'm starting to write a table driven version because I need to convert far more tables and keep them up-to-date with live universe files.  Before I duplicate effort, does anyone know of a package to let me define a one-to-many relationship on many tables, do a one-time mass conversion and then keep them updated with live changes made to the universe tables?

By "SQL DB" do you mean MS SQL Server?

I would be looking at something using SSIS to extract & load the data periodically.

If you're looking for a real-time solution ... that sounds difficult.

yes, it's MS SQL 2005.   I've already done this on one system but there is some hard coded stuff. Now I'm re-writing it in a template driven version so you can define a one-to-many relationalship on any universe file and send it to many SQL tables.   and it's all driven by tables.  Works with mass inserts or on-line updates.  Also creates flat files for DTS input.  I've been told to stop development and see if it already exists before I re-invent the wheel.  You're right.. it's not real easy.  But it's fun.

I won't say for sure that it doesn't exist ... but I would be surprised if that exact solutions is available.

The thing you might want to look into is BizTalk.  It can be configured to move data between dissimilar systems like that ... might save some significant work, but it's not cheap.
