Advice needed to move from DB2/400 flat-file system to Oracle

Koteswararao wrote in with this question recently: "We are planning to move from a DB2/400 flat-file system to Oracle. We do not have any relations in DB2/400. I want to extract the metamodel(total DDL scripts) from DB2/400 and go to datamodeling. Initially I thought Oracle Migration Workbench (OMWB). Unfortunately, it is not supported by V5R4 of DB2/400 on the iSeries. So I can?t use OMWB. Erwin Data modeler is unable to extract the relations directly from database." Do you know what approach he should take? -- Debra Tart, associate editor, Search400.com

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Try Visio. One of the advanced versions (I don’t remember ms’s naming convention) can reverse engineer a db. The iSeries as a DB2 instance is supported, and the ERD’s Visio generates are usable. You should be able to have visio traverse a schema and build the ERD, then export the DDL to Oracle.

    Try iSeries Navigator. You can create a DDL from any library. Best regards Fernando Martinez
