    Hi J.A,
    SQL*Developer can be used to migrate some non-Oracle databases but it doesn't support the SolidDB database.
    The following note available in My Oracle Support describes some alternative options -

    How To Migrate Non-Oracle Databases For Which A Migration Workbench Option Is Not Available (Doc ID 393760.1)

    Basically, the options are -

    1. Use a gateway that supports the non-Oracle database or generic connectivity if a third party ODBC driver is avaible to do a "create table as select...."

    2. Use the SQL*Plus COPY command to copy data from the non-Oracle database to the Oracle database using a gateway or generic connectivity.

    3. Load the non-Oracle data into flat files and use SQL*Loader to put the data into Oracle tables. Again manual work is required for the other objects.

    4. Review the section -

    Finding More Help: Oracle Migration Partners and Support

    on the SQL*Developer Migration Workbench site at -

    which has links to further help especially for the non-Oracle databases not covered by the migration workbench.

    6. Use JDBC to connect to the non-Oracle and Java in the Oracle database. This method will work but it is not suppported by the JDBC team.
