Hi ,

I am wondering if i use oracle store procedure and put whole lot of logic in there and using callable statement get the results is the one way, but what will happen if i move from Oracle database to DB2 ? how do i covert the store procedure logic.

is there any tool that can convert pl/sql code(Stored procedure) from one database to other?

You would have to rewrite the stored procedure. There isn't a tool. If you think it is likely that you will need to switch databases, you would be well served to not create new large stored procedures.

Migration Tool Kits are available for this conversion but they may not convert completly. There are some limitations as well.
