Importing data once from Oracle app into Notes app

What is the simplest way to do a one-time import of data from an Oracle application into a new Notes application? After this initial import, we will not need to update any data from the Oracle application.
Probably the easiest way is to use DECS, which comes with the Domino server.

Create a virtual fields activity, select the option to "Leave all real-time fields in documents" and use the Initialize Keys action. This will create Notes documents that have copies of all the fields you have mapped. Now, just forget to enable the activity and you are all set.

There's a redbook about Lotus Enterprise Integrator (LEI) which will step you through this. If you try to use the redbook, please rate it. Thanks.
