RE: [OSGeo-Discuss] Simplest of questions (with one, assumption)

Have you looked at the fdo2fdo application?  It's a windows-based command line 
and GUI tool for transforming between FDO data sources:

FME's Safe Software also supports SDF if proprietary software is acceptable.

I'd strongly suggest moving to the fdo-users mailing list for any further 
questions about SDF3; this is a list for general discussion of open source 
geospatial topics, and support for SDF3 is currently limited to FDO.

I'm looking into the FDO library and it appears that this approach will not be, 
as you point out, especially easy.  I will follow up with the fdo-users list 
as I move forward on that front.

There used to be an SDFLoader which could transform various input formats into 
SDF(2?) including csv.  This CSV approach was a simple way to get data from any 
old legacy system into Mapguide.  Does anything like the SDFLoader exist to 
convert csv (or any simple neutral format) to SDF3?

 It seems that SDF3 is the native data format for mapguide server.  How 
 does one create SDF3 data without commercial software?

I think the answer is Use FDO:
