I think it would be more appropriate to ask this question in the Oracle group, but anyway ...

A quick Google on "migration+db2+oracle+triggers" gives a couple of possible useful links on the very first page:

  1. Oracle Migration Workbench.

The Oracle Migration Workbench is a tool that simplifies the process of migrating Informix, and DB2 databases to the Oracle platform (Oracle9i and Oracle10g). The Oracle Migration Workbench migrates the entire database schema, including triggers and stored procedures, in an integrated environment.

To migrate Microsoft Access, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL and Sybase databases to Oracle refer to Oracle SQL Developer, which now incorporates the Migration Workbench.

B. SwisSQL - DB2 to Oracle Migration Tool 1.5

SwisSQL DB2 to Oracle Migration Tool converts

  1. Procedures, Functions, Triggers, Tables, Views and other database objects from DB2 SQL to Oracle PL/SQL.
  2. DB2 SQL built-in and user-defined datatypes to Oracle PL/SQL.
  3. DB2 SQL built-in functions into corresponding PL/SQL functions. [...]
  4. DMLs and Cursors with isolation levels.
  5. Exception handlers like CONTINUE and EXIT handlers.
  6. Almost all other DB2 SQL syntaxes into Oracle PL/SQL. </q> Note: they also offer similar capabilities for the reverse migration:
  7. Ispirer SQLWays 3.9
