This challenge was set forth on Sept-12 to the public (read article) to perform a 1M record load LIVE at an Oracle OpenWorld session on Oct-2 using Oracle Data Integrator titled, Oracle Data Integration: A Crucial Ingredient for Cloud Integration [CON7926]. The operation takes ~6 hours with an open source Postgres JDBC driver v8.4 and there was no proof this was even possible to do.
Here's the play by play which came down to the wire, and we ended up doing a little SaaS Cloud integration with Salesforce as well with the unexpected extra time :)
