Hi Machiel,

I'm not sure if you like the method I use for Export from Oracle to MySQL 

You need an ODBC DSN for each, source and destination DB. Then you create an 
empty Access Database with a link to the Oracle Source table.

If the destination MySQL table doesn't yet exists, you can export the linked 
oracle table directly into the existing ODBC-DSN of the MySQL DB.
If (later on) the destination MySQL table exists, you can create an 
Add-Query that inserts selected rows from the Oracle table to the end of the 
MySQL table.

These actions could be placed into macros (Access 'autoexec' for example) 
and in scheduled jobs of your operating system (I hope it's Windows, because 
you didn't say anything about that).

If you don't like the Access built-in Visual Basic language, you can use any 
other programming language that has components to access to ODBC databases 
like Borland/Embarcadero C++Builder/Delphi or Microsoft Visual C++ etc.

Hope this helps.
