I recently installed ubercart on oracle database and found that it is not supporting it. I came to conclusion that a lot of queries were written using db_query which are specific to mysql. I think we need to make use of pdo classes (db_select, db_update, db_insert, db_delete) so that it supports other databases too. Soon i will be submitting a patch for this as currently doing code changes to make this compatible.
