Currently the exam is available in beta version, which is a great chance to be one of the first to pass this highly anticipated exam.

But first, what is GoldenGate 12c?

Oracle GoldenGate is replication software, which is very easy to configure and deploy it in large scale environment. With the success of the previous versions of GoldenGate, the 12c version has become one of the most anticipated releases of the year. And from what we see so far, it’s most definitely worth the hype.

Both according to Oracle and independent professionals, with the introduction of the new features in Oracle GoldenGate 12c, the configuration and management of replication has become much easier. It provides support for Oracle 12c multitenant database, more secure authentication and much better performance management options. Most of these features however require the database to be at version or above.

These are some of the most distinctive features of Oracle GoldenGate 12c:

  1. Replication: Coordinated Mode
  2. Replication: Integrated Mode
  3. Multitenant Support: 12c Database –
  4. Security: Credential store
  5. Security: Wallet and Master Key
