Using the DB2TM module relational data can be automatically converted into Topic Maps data, either over JDBC or from a CSV file. The conversion uses a simple declarative XML file to describe the mapping from relational data to Topic Maps. It is possible to invoke custom Java code from the XML file in order to perform necessary transformations during the conversion.

In addition to supporting simple conversions the DB2TM module also supports synchronization, which means that it is possible to use the DB2TM module to automatically keep the topic map up to date as changes occur in the database.
