Oracle 9i to Sql server 2008 migration

    Question

  • I want to migrate from Oracle 9i to Sql server 2008 using SSMA. Please let me know what steps will I have to follow.

    Our Oracle 9i database contain following objects :

    1. Tables
    2. Views
    3. Indexes
    4. Packages
    5. Procedures
    6. Functions
    7. Triggers
    8. Sequence
    9. Materialized Views
    10. Public Synonym
    11. Database link
    12. Jobs
    13. Directories

    we need to do following changes after using SSMA:

    (1) change code for oracle cursors,built in functions,triggers as syntax is different in sql server

    (2) convert package into storeprocs/functions

    (3)convert sequence into database identity column

    (4) convert Materialized Views into indexed views

    Please give me information about Public Synonym and Directories.How will it convert into Sql server Synonym and Directories.Is it possible?

    and also provide me information if I am missing anything for above mentioned all oracle database objects for conversion

    (2) convert package into storeprocs/functions--same for step1

    (3)convert sequence into database identity column --same for step1

    (4) convert Materialized Views into indexed views--Need to Create Indexed views as there is no Materialized views.
