Book review of: Oracle GoldenGate 11g Complete Cookbook
I really like books that have a simple and straightforward description of what and how i.e. exactly how to install, how to set it and what it means, etc.and in my personal opinion, this book fully meets that definition.
The Oracle GoldenGate 11g Complete Cookbook is intended primarily for people who have very good administration and development experience with Oracle databases.
The book is very easy to read with well written, examples are very well written and explained exactly how to proceed. I thing with this book you get very greate introduction to Oracle Gate, how to setup datapums, how to use the data filtering and mapping, how to store the transaction history etc..
Personally, the most interesting chapters for me was:
“5. Oracle GoldenGate High Availability” – where are described how to create a highly available GoldenGate configuration with different file systems e.g. ocfs2, dbfx, acfs, etc.
“7.Advanced Administration Task-1” – where are described how to use the revese utility, how to a downstream database wth Integrated Capture etc.
I was surprised (but praise for it), that the authors of this book, do not forget for monitoring the GolgenGate with OEM12c and described it in the last chapter.
So my conclusion is that if you want to use Oracle Golden Gate, or if you already use this tool, then you must have this book.
