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 :

Tables
Views
Indexes
Packages
Procedures
Functions
Triggers
Sequence
Materialized Views
Public Synonym
Database link
Jobs
Directories

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.

Migrating Oracle database to SQL Server database should never be a goal. The target is usually business process reengineering in such migration needs. You can not and should not try to migrate each and every database object. Simply put, there is no equvalent for each and every jargon in Oracle in the SQL server. For example, 'Package' in your list does not exist in the SQL Server, to start with.
You need to perhaps work towards business process reengineering and include the development side in the scope to produce working equivalent in the SQL Server side for the objects in the Oracle database.
