Ok, a few weeks ago I posted a blog about how Oracle Database 12c was moving away from Oracle Streams and Advance Replication. That is still true; however, as I (and many of you) have combed through the documentation set for DB12c, there are still references to Oracle Streams and Advance Replication. This got me to thinking and looking around within the database. What I found was there are a few new data dictionary views related to Golden Gate. What I have been disappointed in, is that there is no reference to Golden Gate within the DB12c documentation set other than the names of the views and what I have found in the database.
The views are:
I have contacted Oracle about this and I have been told that the latest release of Oracle Golden Gate will work with 12c. That is great, but how does it interact with these new view in the database? Guess, we will have to wait and see what is in store with the next release of Golden Gate and its documentation.
In the meantime, I’ll be testing Golden Gate with DB12c.
