Converting MS SQL 2008 DB to Oracle 10G DB

Medium Priority

Last Modified: 2013-12-19
I have this MS SQL 2008 (Std) DB with all requiste code, e.g. sp, functions, views, triggers, etc. We have a mandate to convert the entire backend into Oracle 10G.  Due to time constraints, I would really appreciate a 3rd party app that actually works and converts from one platform to another.

Does anyone have any recommendation for a conversion app?

Thanks

there is no such tool, AFAIK.
there are some tools to help migation of the tables, indexes and view.
however, procedures, functions, triggers are just too different in many cases for a automatic conversion.

What about Oracle SQL Developer for Windows?  Isn't this Oracle's tool to help with the conversion?

Kindly check this one out for Data Migration:

For DDL Migration:

http://www.swissql.com/products/sqlserver-to-oracle/sql-server-to-oracle.html

Above doesn't support SQL Server 2008 and hence some manual intervention is required.

Kindly check this one too from Oracle
