Oracle GoldenGate for DB2 z/OS 126.96.36.199.2 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 z/OS.
The following new features are provided:
Table-Level Character Set Encoding: In DB2 z/OS, each table can have a different encoding. Oracle GoldenGate for DB2 z/OS 12.2 keeps the table-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.
Certified to run on z/OS 2.2
