I want to migrate from Oracle 9i to Sql server 2008 using SSMA. Please let me know what steps will I have to follow.

Our Oracle 9i database contain following objects :

Materialized Views
Public Synonym
Database link

we need to do following changes after using SSMA:

(1) change code for oracle cursors,built in functions,triggers as syntax is different in sql server

(2) convert package into storeprocs/functions

(3)convert sequence into database identity column

(4) convert Materialized Views into indexed views

Please give me information about Public Synonym and Directories.How will it convert into Sql server Synonym and Directories.Is it possible?

and also provide me information if I am missing anything for above mentioned all oracle database objects for conversion

In Oracle we typically have to create a public synonym so users can use an object without specifying the owner of that object. In sql Server we have users that are public by default, you have to specifically assign read/write permissions to the databases.
