Oracle Portal 10g to Microsoft Sharepoint 2010 Migration

At work we have been planning a migration from Oracle Portal 10g to Microsoft Sharepoint. Currently holding more than 100gig of data and documents, it’s understandable we can not migrate it manually. It seemed a big problem to get an automated tool which migrates all our pages (and the structure) and the underlaying document (including the title and description). We did not need to migrate the OID groups, page security rights and so on. Just the folder structure and its contents.

Consultants couldn’t be found that easily and time kept on ticking away. That’s why i developed a tool myself. All it does is automatically copying the selected Oracle Portal folder and contents to the selected Sharepoint Library. I must say it works flawlessly.

Tools used:, Sharepoint webservices (especially lists.asmx & dws.asmx). If any questions, i am glad to explain more.

    Many questions: Does your tool move non-file content such as Links or Text? Is your tool available to others?

      Hi Derek,
      Textual content is not yet migrated but it might not be a big problem to migrate it into a document library as a .txt file or as metadata with other files. Normal weblinks might also be migrated this way but for page links i still have no solution. I guess it might be possible to adjust the script to migrate them by combining the ids. I’ll check to upload the program so you can try it yourself.

      I actually don’t develop it further anymore as it was chosen to use the services of T-Systems and Vamosa

    Hello, I am an IT worker in Spain and we are facing a Oracle to SharePoint 2013 migration. I would like to know if your tool Works with SharePoint 2013? Is it possible to test it?
    I appreciate your attention.

    As we still haven’t migrated i had to rewrite the tool to also work with Sharepoint 2013. For the SP-side we use the Client-side object model and there are not too much differences between 2013 and 2010.
    Contact me by mail if you want to test it but i don’t have a lot of time to modify or adjust the code (some stuff is hardcoded because it’s written for our portals to be migrated).
    But the basics should work. Only prerequisite is that you have the Oracle Client installed on your machine…
