We have Oracle Spatial installed and its being used by an application. I guess spatial feature is just a add-on to standard oracle database.

Can I use DB2 Information Integration to access data (and write back too) in Oracle Spatial ?

If yes, will I need DB2 Spatial extender as well ?

Thanks

Hi sachinwadhwa,

Bad news.  Oracle Spatial is a proprietary product that has no equal in the DB2 world.  If you're going to port your Spatial application to DB2 you've got a fair amount of work ahead of you.  And I'm unaware of a DB2 Spatial extender product.  You'll have to be somewhat creative.


Good Luck!

Hi sachinwadhwa,

Wow.  That's news to me.  :)  Learn something every day, huh?  Oracle has such a huge share of that market that I didn't even recognize IBM as a player there.
