PHOENIX--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Bull's Database Migration Business Unit (www.postgresmigrations.com) launches an online Oracle PL/SQL to PostgreSQL PL/pgSQL translation tool demonstration offering for IT professionals on its website. Accessing the translation tool requires an activation code, which enables use of the tool set, at no charge, for 30 days, with a limit of 2000 lines of PL/SQL stored procedures. The demonstration supports a wide range of translation cases, including outer join and nested table support, plus a myriad of those little details that make translation by hand a real chore. Users can cut and paste the converted output into the editor of their choice.
“We believe in PostgreSQL and its use as a robust and cost-effective solution to opening up an organization’s databases to all of its processes”
According to Bull’s Director of Open Products and Services, Jim Smith, “Companies are scrambling to migrate their databases forward even as they grapple with scaling up to today’s applications that generate huge, complex mountains of data. IT professionals and business managers are searching for solution providers that can deliver on the promise of open source software. Our demonstration tool set helps companies validate that PL/SQL-to-PL/pgSQL translations will work in their unique situation by generating code that they can compile and test and by making them aware where they have more complex migration needs that can benefit from the Professional Services of Bull’s Database Migration Business Unit.
“We believe in PostgreSQL and its use as a robust and cost-effective solution to opening up an organization’s databases to all of its processes,” concluded Smith.
