Best tool for migrating SQL Server database to Oracle

What is the best tool to migrate a SQL Server database to Oracle (10g)?

There are probably a number of good ways to do this, but the first option that I think of is Oracle's Migration Workbench. According to the documentation:

"The Migration Workbench is a tool that simplifies the process of migrating data and applications from an Microsoft SQL Server and Sybase Adaptive Server environment to an Oracle9i or Oracle8i destination database. The Migration Workbench allows you to quickly and easily migrate an entire application system, that is the database schema including triggers and stored procedures, in an integrated, visual environment."

I have not personally used the Migration Workbench so you may want to ask others who have. You can find the reference documentation for this utility on Oracle's Technology Network Web site.
