RE: Differences between Oracle and Progress, actually starting point for considering any migration from Oracle to anything else...

Well, Postgres has PlPgSql, which is relatively close to Oracle's
PL/SQL.
At least closer, than procedural languages in any other dbms I saw.

But, yes when migrating application from Oracle to PG I did have to
modify my PL/SQL packages, triggers, veiw definitions (i.e. replace
DECODE functions with "CASE" manually).

Oracle has PL/SQL. Until and unless Oracle decides the port PL/SQL to
some sort of minimum requirements platform features in competing
databases so that at least an 80% subset of PL/SQL is portable, the
first fiscally responsible step is to access whether it is practical to
move your code base off PL/SQL. If it is not, then you save the costs of
the rest of the comparison. By the way, do not hold your breath.
Whatever adjectives get coupled with Larry Ellison in a sentence, you
will rarely see one of them be "stupid."

Dear List
I have been tasked to produce a list showing the major differences
between Oracle and a Progress  database.
May you please help me with websites, docs and personal research info,
and experience  that you might  have working with Progress.
We are currently using Oracle 9.2 for our application.
