Why would you want to? That's going backwards and most companies I know have already adopted to ANSI join syntax.

I don't allow any joins using + from anyone in my projects.

I agree with the above post:  Use ANSI if you can.

Since you want it anyway, see if this example helps:
drop table parent purge;
create table parent (id number);

drop table child purge;
create table child (id number, parent_id number);


insert into parent values(1);
insert into parent values(2);

insert into child values(1,1);
insert into child values(2,1);
insert into child values(3,2);
commit;


select p.id,c.id
from child c full outer join parent p on c.id=p.id
/

select p.id,c.id
from child c, parent p 
where c.id=p.id(+)
/

Without testing at all, the old equivalent for full outer join involves a UNION, along these lines:

SELECT    obj_name
,         p.obj_children
,         c.obj_parents
FROM ( 
      SELECT p.obj_parent as obj_name, p.obj_children, c.obj_parents
      FROM by_parent p, by_child c
      WHERE  p.obj_parent  = c.obj_child(+)
      UNION
      SELECT c.obj_child, p.obj_children, c.obj_parents
      FROM by_parent a, by_child b
      WHERE  p.obj_parent(+)  = c.obj_child
    )

Even more reason to simply use the ANSI syntax :)

Hell YES! Get rid of those proprietary Oracle syntax ASAP ;-)
There are numerous reasons coding ANSI style, and rather none for using Oracle's internal syntax :-((
