I'm looking for a tool to load raster data into oracle spatial. I found several commercial products but no open source tool.
Is there anything available in the open source world?

I have also been looking for a software to test Oracle Spatial GeoRaster. I have found this solution from PCI Geomatics, which is not open source, but, at least it's free.
You can check it here (registration needed):
I have registered myself and received a download link. However, I am having problems to download the file, so I have contacted the company.
Please, let me know how it goes.
Talking with the people of PCI Geomatics I found that GeoRaster Loader is no more available. You can download FreeView, which can be connected to Oracle.
It seems that geotiffs can be loaded directly using GDAL:
I will check this too.
A brief explanation on how to build GDAL with Oracle and GeoRaster support:
GDAL is your best bet if you are looking for an open source solution. It only provides library functions and command line tools, but Oracle also distributes a simple GUI-based ETL that uses GDAL internally.
This tool comes with Oracle Database 12c, but you can also download it in isolation from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/indexes/samplecode/spatial-1433316.html
EDIT: I should clarify that the tool embeds a pre-built copy of GDAL 1.10 for win32, win64 and linux-64, but you can use your own copy if you prefer.
