In Oracle, views and other objects have a flag status in all_objects. MTK does not detect this valid, and does port all views, disregarding the state of the flag.

Currently, invalid objects must be deleted manually.

How to repeat:
Create views in Oracle that Oracle  marks as invalid, check all_objects.state.

Try to migrate them. Watch them being migrated with no annotation or message. The generated SQL will not work in MySQL, either.

Suggested fix:
When migrating, check all_objects.state for VALID. If object is not VALID, either do not select it for migration, or generate it commented out, or generate an additional comment on top of the object.
