At the risk of losing a PostGIS user, if your attributes are permanently 
inside Oracle, the most effective solution would be to move your shapes 
to Oracle too. That way you could join them on-the-fly in SQL inside 
Oracle quite efficiently. Mapserver will let you do this, as well as 
other tools. And for those tools that don't, you can create a view that 
materializes the join.
