Oracle GoldenGate for DB2 for i Release is Available

Oracle GoldenGate for DB2 i was released on 4/15/2016. You now can download the software from OTN and eDelivery. This is the first 12.2 release of Oracle GoldenGate for DB2 for i (DB2 for i).

The following new features are provided:
  • Column-Level Character Set Encoding:  In DB2 for i, each table column can have a different encoding. Oracle GoldenGate for DB2 for i 12.2 keeps the column-level encoding unchanged during the replication. The replication performance is improved by avoiding character set conversions. 
  • ​Metadata In Trail: the definition (defgen) files and the SOURCEDEFS/ASSUMETARGETDEF parameters are no longer needed.
  • One Billion Trail Files: trail file sequence length has increased to nine digits, a 1000x increase to one billion trail files.
  • Heartbeat Table: Users can enable the feature to record end-to-end replication lag and view replication statistics with a database view. 
  • Capturing from Remote JournalsRemote journal support allows GoldenGate extract running on a remote IBM i system to read journal data generated from the primary IBM i system. This eliminates most of the interactions of Oracle GoldenGate extract with the primary system. 
The following features are added to GoldenGate for DB2 for i 12.1 and are available in 12.2:
  • Support Multi-Journals
  • Native Name Handling 
  • Support Partitioned Tables 
  • Certified to run on IBM iSeries 7.2 
The following platforms are certified in this release: 
  • DB2 for i: 7.1, 7.2
