I've just uploaded a newer version of libDatabase to my site.  This  
version has been tested with Valentina 2 more than the version you  
downloaded.  I've also included libDatabaseObjects, an example stack  
and additional documentation.  I haven't had time to proof the text  
and do some other sanity checks on the examples but I'm not sure when  
I will so I am just putting it up there.

libDatabase contains a handler that attempts to convert from one  
database to another.  I've used it in my projects to convert from  
MySQL (which we use in-house) to Valentina 1.x databases for  
deployment to customers.  I haven't tried it with Valentina 2 though.

Check out the PDF documents included in the download for more info.   
If nothing else, you can look at the libDatabase code for ideas on  
how to do the conversion.
