Migration with Oracle Transparent Gateways

If the existing system is too huge that it seems to be a painstaking job to migrate the entire schema, stored procedures and triggers manually, then would the Oracle Transparent Gateways serve the purpose of getting Oracle Environment benefits without actually creating the schema and retaining the existing one in the Informix Dynamic Server 7.3 itself?


The Oracle Transparent Gateways will let you use database links to connect an Oracle database to another vendor's RDBMS platform (i.e. Informix, DB2, etc.). Many sites use Transparent Gateways and Heterogeneous Services to connect their Oracle database to older, legacy systems. This lets them accomplish exactly what you are asking. They can use the existing Informix system without going through the painstaking process of migrating a schema, stored procedures, triggers, etc. to Oracle. So you are on the correct track!
