DB2 Migrate to Oracle 8i?!


This tip provided by Experts Exchange.



Hi all,
One of our client want to migrate their existing database system DB2 to Oracle8i. I searched the IBM
and Oracle website but still couldn’t find any hint. In my opinion, I willexport DB2 to OS file and
import it to Oracle 8i. But I couldn’t find which file format that Oracle 8iimport utility supported?
Would you mind give me some suggestion!


Accepted Answer:


The Oracle import utility is for reading dumps created with Oracle’s exportutility.
You may have to use a delimited file and use Oracle’s Sql*Loader utility toload each table.





There is a better way to migrate a schema and data from DB2 to Oracle
