Here some options :

1. Build your own Z39.50 server using the COMSTACK, Z-functions of YAZ : 

2. Build your server based on YAZ' Generic Frontend Server. Easy if you 
know C; Otherwise hard.

3. Implement a server based on simpleserver. 
http://www.indexdata.com/simpleserver . Easy if you're comfortable with 

4. Implement a server based on JZKit. Easy if you know how to read Java 
code (due to lack of doc). Hard otherwise.

You should be able to get in touch with Oracle in all cases.. C, Java, Perl.
