MYSQL are not likely to have much on how to convert to Oracle in the same way that Oracle probably do not have a lot to offer on a conversion to MySQL
If the database is small then simple sql extracts may be sufficient rather than a whole database convert. There does seem to be a number of 3rd party tools available so I suspect that a mysqldump or similar would not be compatible with Oracle import/datapump.

I did find which seems to do what you want (and for free)

MySQL conversion

I just was asked about converting some MySQL databases to Oracle. I personally have never seen MySQL so I have no idea where to start with. Has anyone else done this? Can it be done? Can anyone point me to scripts to do it - if they exist? They are very small databases. If that is not easy, anyone point me to good docs on running it? I have been looking thru but that doesn't tell me much.
