We have used the predecessor to the OTL for many of our apps and were
planning to use the OTL for the new system.  I thought the OTL used ODBC to
make its connection with databases other than Oracle.  I know the OTL
supports Oracle natively.

Sadly we cannot move to Linux.  We managed to get our web servers on Linux,
but the big iron will always be Sun here (Company policy).  There has been
talk of getting Oracle 9i? because Oracle has told us it is much faster, but
we are not holding our breath.

How are your apps written?  We use OTL libaries from
which are compiled into our C/C++ code. Moving our apps from oracle to mysql

only requires changing 3 or 4 lines per call to the db in the code. Its not 
odbc "compliant", but still allows our apps to be "farily" portable and
We debated rewriting our apps to be ODBC compiant, but figured that was one 
more layer for bugs and we'd have to switch db platforms 4 times for it to
cost effective.

Have you tried Oracle on Linux? We did some testing before Oracle told us
cost of migrating our licence from Oracle8/Solaris to Oracle8i/Linux. We 
benchmarked our current db server, Sun Ultra single processor 768MB ram, 
against a 600Mhz 500MB ram Intel/Linux box. The Linux./8i/Intel box smoked 
our current db server.
