Oracle Frontend / Backend Protocol

I am fairly new to Oracle in general.
One of my customers is asking for a software implementing the Oracle
wire-protocol.
The idea is: They have a very old Cobol application which cannot be
changed anymore. They want to migrate from Oracle to other databases
without changing their Cobol software.
My idea was: To implement an adapter talking "Oracle". This adapter can
then transform the Oracle protocol to something else.
My question now is: Which wire protocol does Oracle support? Is it
realistic to implement something like that in realistic time?
Can anybody point me to Oracle specs describing the protocol?

Regards,

Hans

Proprietary. No public API.

Details, as they exist, available in the Oracle Networking manuals at
http://tahiti.oracle.com or http://docs.oracle.com
