Fogbugz and Oracle

We'd love to use Fogbugz but would like to use our existing Oracle installation as a backend. How much effort would it take to make Fogbugz work with Oracle? Has anyone done this yet?

It should work, but we here at Fog Creek have not tried it. A few customers have asked about this, and perhaps one of them  will post here.

FB does not use stored procedures, or vendor specific SQL. All the SQL is in the ASP pages. We ship db create  scripts for SQL Server and MySQL, tweaking one of these will enable you to create your database, and from there things might work completely smoothly, or perhaps a tweak or two further would be needed.

We do offer a 90-day no questions asked money back guarantee, so I suggest you could buy one license and try it out, and if you're not liking how it's working out we'll simply refund your purchase.

You could even download your FB trial database before purchasing and play around with porting it over.
