Hi guys,

my company decided to go from Sybase Anywhere 7.0 to DB2. I'm not so
happy with that, but I'm a little bit curious how good DB2 is in real.
We don't want to migrate all our databases to DB2, we want to evaluate
first and migrate one database. Does anybody know a migration tool, to
migrate a whole Sybase Anywhere database to DB2, with Stored Procedures,

Triggers and everything.
IBM has some migration tools, but we don't want to use them, we want to
evaluate this for ourseleves first and we don't want to have lots of
work with such a migration.

Maybe there is 3rd party tool who can do that ? Please help me ?

Dunno. I'm not sure why they didn't go from ASA to ASE, unless
its to do with a product they're using. DB2 is kind of funny -
based on their magazine. Lots of ads for third party programs
that do buffer tuning. Strange.

I don't think you'll find many people here who know much about
DB2 let alone going from ASA to DB2. You might have better luck
in the ASA newsgroups or in a DB2 newsgroup (if one exists).
