How to migrate from an enbedded DB to MySQL?

So I have been trying for a few days to figure out how to migrate from an embedded DB to a MySQL DB!

I have found a few documents which say it is technically possible, but they are:

  1. Old
  2. Are based on a Windows install (I’m on Ubuntu)
  3. Rely on an outdated MySQL utility called Migration Toolkit.
    I tried with the old utility, but it just doesn’t work. I copied the embedded-db folder to the windows desktop and ran utility as in the examples but it errors out saying there is a problem with the .class file and Unknown Source…

I tried with the new Workspace utility (which also handles migrations) but this new version doesn’t support Java…

I can’t be the only person who has wanted to do this.
