This Oracle GoldenGate 12c: Fundamentals for Oracle training focuses on Oracle-to-Oracle database replication. Expert Oracle University instructors will deep dive into the Oracle GoldenGate architecture, walking you through various product features.

Learn To:

  • Install Oracle GoldenGate on Linux and Windows platforms.
  • Issue GGSCI commands.
  • Configure, start, stop and monitor Change Capture and Delivery processes.
  • Manage Extract trails and files using Data Pump and logdump.
  • Create parameter files to transform data.
  • Manage multiple Oracle GoldenGate instances.

Benefits to You

Integrate your organization's disparate data across heterogeneous databases for improved decision-making. Become more efficient at configuring and implementing Oracle GoldenGate.

Install GoldenGate Installation & Command Line

You'll learn to install Oracle GoldenGate and prepare the source and target environments. Enrolling in this course teaches you how to use the Oracle GoldenGate command line interface (GGSCI) efficiently.

Learn GoldenGate Configuration Processes

You'll also develop the knowledge and skills to configure Change Capture (Extract), Change Delivery (Replicat) and Initial Load. You'll learn how to extract trails and files using Data Pump, create parameter files and manage Oracle GoldenGate instances.

Uni- and Bi-Directional Replication

Capture of both DML and DDL will be configured for both uni- and bi-directional replication with collision detection.

Explore New Features in 12c

Features new to 12c, such as Integrated Apply and Wallet, are highlighted along the way. This course is based on Oracle GoldenGate version 12.1.2. Please note that the labs are done in Linux.
