I have a small program that uses mySQL and I am thinking to move it to Oracle. There are a few conversion issues and I appreciate your input and suggestions: 1. In mySQL there is auto_increment function but not in Oracle 9i. In my JSP sql (that uses mySQL) I could have just use insert into t_emp (id, name) value ('', 'Joe Black');
In oracle I uses sequence and the sql looks like: insert into t_emp values (emp_seq.nextval, 'Joe Black'); How could I use just 1 type of sql for both databases? 2. If I use NOW() in the DATETIME in mySQL in some INSERT statement, what should I replace with in Oracle. Actually, what is the best way to develop this type of program so that it could be deploy between mySQL(during development) and Oracle (production)? Thank you.

the answer of the second question
you can use sysdate to get the db's time [ November 24, 2003: Message edited by: Harry Lin ]
