Hi ,
      I would lke to one more thing. that is I am using Jinterface for my 
developemnt purpose..since i have a server code written in Erlang..and what 
I am currently doing is writing code on the client side so as to say using 
Jinterface. Therefore I need to take the back up of the database from mensia 
to Oracle or Mysql whichever is possible. SO any solution for that with

mnesia:dump_to_textfile(Filename)

Dumps all local tables of a mnesia system into a text file which can
then be edited (by means of a normal text editor) and then later be
reloaded with mnesia:load_textfile/1. Only use this function for
educational purposes. Use other functions to deal with real backups.

This function hopefully helps you futher.
