Database Independence is one of the major advantages of OpenAccess.
That means you develop your application, but stay independent from the deployment. The deployment can vary in terms of different databases, but additionally also in terms of different schemata.
Generally, the major differences are the data source and the mapping (defined in a mapping file outside of the code and outside of the database). If you can live with the same schema and data types, it will be even easier.
