Understand how to choose the right tool for your business.”

Q Replication Now Captures Oracle Log Changes Natively

Posted by Frank Fillmore on September 23, 2009 under InfoSphere, Oracle, Q-Replication. Tags: , , .

Most of you are aware that DB2 9 for LUW delivers PL/SQL APIs in v9.7.  That is, you can run Oracle applications against DB2 for LUW databases with little or no modification.  What you might not have heard is that IBM’s high availability, low-latency replication product – Q Replication – will now natively capture changes natively in Oracle logs.  That is, you can replication your Oracle Financials to a InfoSphere Warehouse.  Q Replication is a feature of IBM’s InfoSphere Replication Server, so you might not have noticed the new functionality with all of the name changes.

Two links describe the enhancement.  David Tolleson and Ed Lynch of IBM have both provided good information on the specifications and details.
