Hi Experts, I'm quite new with Oracle database. I have developed a new HR system for my client by using PHP with Oracle 11g. However, my client had their old HR system with running on Solaris with Oracle 7 database. I have to migrate the data from old Oracle 7 database to the new one. I've tried using Oracle SQL Developer running on my Windows 7 notebook to connect to it via network but cannot. Do you have any recommendations on how to connect to Oracle 7, accessing the data and migrate them to Oracle 11g. Thank you very much.

Go to the 7 database and export it.  I wouldn't do a FULL.  Just export the schemas you need.

Go to the 11g database and import.

I've never jumped that big of a gap in versions but if you check out slide 48 in the link below, it suggests it's possible.

I don't think you will find a GUI tool that will connect to both Oracle7 and Oracle11.  I agree that if you export all (or parts) of an Oracle7 database you should be able to import that into an Oracle11 database.

If everything else fails and the database is small, you could dump all the tables to csv files.
I have attached a script I found may Many MANY years ago that could help you (with a little bit of tweeking) automate the process.
Good luck!
