I have a legacy Alpha server with a RDBMS database. This db is replicated in a MySQL db with many bad php scripts that drops all the tables and takes everything from the Alpha.

This works very slow and is becoming unmaintainable. Is there a better way to fix this than programming again the scripts? Anything like MySQL Migration Toolkit?

I think the Java SQuirreL JDBC client has a 3rd party "DBCopy" plugin that allows DB replication through JDBC. Just a thought.
