oracle and sybase compatibility

I am looking into using an application (C++) that runs on a UNIX platform utilizing SYBASE RDMS.  I want to use the application with ORACLE.  Does anyone know what kind of problems I may run into?

RE: oracle and sybase compatibility


The biggest problem that you are likely to encounter if is your C++ code refers to system tables (such as sysobjects, sysindexes etc) as they all have different names between the two systems.

In terms of simple DDL and DML language, they are virtually identical, it is if you move towards DBA functions, or start using stored procedures that the problems can occur.
