merging 2 mysql databases with java

Hi,

I need to merge 2 mysql databases with java or python.

The databases are exactly the same in schema but data is different.

in terms of the query which i need to pass in java or python. Anything i should care about?

Would it be the case that i need to insert data to the table having foreign key first?

what is the strategy?

I don't think there's a 'simple' way to do it. It's just a question of putting the work in

But any approach you suggest?

You need to issue a series of queries for each and every table

Should i do this e.g
A) Table 2 fk (source): insert into Table 2' fk (target)

B) Table 1 pk (source): insert into Table 1' pk (target)

Should i do in this order (A, B)

Fk: foreign key, Pk: primary key

Prime tables are the tables that will have the merged data

Foreign keys would be a consideration if you are going to get referential integrity violations, yes. In that case, you need to do them in an order that doesn't cause violations

Do you think my above order is correct?

I'm not sure if i understand your notation but the general principle is that the table with a foreign key must be done after the table to which it refers (i.e. the one that contains that key)
