Backint for MaxDB

Purpose

This documentation specifies the Backint interface for MaxDB that can be used to connect external backup tools to the MaxDB Database Manager database tool.

Implementation Considerations

You can download the MaxDB software from the MaxDB website (see Download and Installation Profile). The MaxDB software includes a special implementation of the Backint for MaxDB specification. This special implementation allows you to connect external backup tools with a Backint for Oracle interface to Database Manager (see Connecting to a Backint for Oracle Interface).

For more information on the database system, see Database System Concepts and Glossary.

Features

Each implementation of a Bankint for MaxDB interface must include the following functions:

·        Backup Function

·        Restore Function

·        Inquire Function

·        Delete Function

The Backint for MaxDB program definition  describes the formal requirements that must be met in order to implement Backint for MaxDB.
