> fails completely to ease the porting of Oracle SQL to MySQL.

One can have either standards conformance, or Oracle compatibility. Not both. Even data types are different.

I doubt Oracle migration is a market for MySQL. Witness they appointed SAPdb under the MaxDB moniker as their upgrade path.

> I have a large application written for Oracle. The SQL is fairly standart

No, it is not. Oracle is in serious deviation from the ISO SQL standard.

Oracle is in serious deviation from the ISO SQL standard.

This is true, but I give them a little credit since they were the first platform-independent SQL server (as in, you didn't have to buy vendor-specific hardware with it). ;)

In fact they were the first, period. Larry Elison launched Oracle from IBM's System R papers even before IBM itself had a product.

This 'merit' is more of a function of them not being hardware vendors, just like Microsoft in the OS field.
