MySQL’s white paper on migrating from Oracle to MySQL

I just found this March 2006 white paper on migrating from Oracle to MySQL. Too bad I hadn’t seen this before I gave my talk or started this blog! Go to mysql.com and click on “White Papers” under the “Discover” tab, then search the page for “A Practical Guide to Migrating From Oracle to MySQL”. (Or go directly to http://www.mysql.com/why-mysql/white-papers/ and search for it.)

Good paper on the issues involved that gives tips, references tools and case studies, and has appendices that compare syntaxes, data types, etc. Wish I had found it earlier. Good to keep poking around from time to time, to find things like this.

    Well, I can’t find the white paper and I’m now assuming that Oracle deleted it when they took over Sun/Mysql. Is there a copy anywhere else?

    Thanks,

    Mick

    It looks as if you are right, Mick. I can’t find it either, now. 😦
