» Description
Essentially this package would be an unbundled version of the current MDB2_Tools_Manager class. The class itself is fairly uptodate, the only thing that needs to happen is to refactor some of the code to be cleaner (specifically the XML writing part should use something like XML_Serializer) and also remove all datatype specific code (maybe leave some LOB specific code to be able to dump LOB's into external files instead of into an XML file).

This would allow for a separate release cycle and most importantly highlight the fact that the functionality provided is optional from MDB2 (to make it more clear that the MDB2_Manager can be used to setup databases that are not accessed via MDB2 during the runtime). Also it would allow me to drop the XML_Parser dependency from MDB2 to maybe one day kill off that "MDB2 uses XML at runtime" myth.
