Earlier I wrote a blog post about moving the Oracle Golden Gate Extract from “Classic” capture to “Integrated” capture. In this post, we will take a look at how to move a “Classic” replicat (apply) to an “Integrated” replicat (apply) process.
The initial step to migrate the replicat from “Classic” to “Integrated” are the same as the extract. Look here for the initial details. This post picks up when we are getting ready to stop the replicat and perform the migration.
Before we can do anything with the replcat, we need to be in GGSCI.
[[email protected] oggcore_1]$ ./ggsci Oracle GoldenGate Command Interpreter for Oracle Version 126.96.36.199.0 17185003 17451407_FBO Linux, x64, 64bit (optimized), Oracle 11g on Oct 29 2013 00:31:40 Operating system character set identified as UTF-8.

Now, we need to stop the replciat (apply) process that we are using.
GGSCI (oel.acme.com) 1> info all Program Status Group Lag at Chkpt Time Since Chkpt MANAGER RUNNING JAGENT STOPPED EXTRACT RUNNING EXT 00:00:09 00:00:00 EXTRACT RUNNING PMP 00:00:00 00:00:10 REPLICAT RUNNING REP 00:00:00 00:00:08 GGSCI (oel.acme.com) 2> stop replicat rep Sending STOP request to REPLICAT REP ... Request processed.
With the replicat stopped, we need to log into the database through GGSCI.
GGSCI (oel.acme.com) 3> dblogin userid ggate, password ggate Successfully logged into database.
Next, we need to alter the replicat to make it integrated.
GGSCI (oel.acme.com) 4> alter replicat rep, integrated REPLICAT (Integrated) altered.
Finally, we need to start the replicat.
GGSCI (oel.acme.com) 5> start replicat rep Sending START request to MANAGER ... REPLICAT REP starting
Once the replicat has been started, we can check the replicat and look at the details with the INFO option.

From looking at the details of the replicat, you can see that it is now integrated and using the DBLOGIN that we provided earlier.
I’m Bobby Curtis and I’m just your normal average guy who has been working in the technology field for awhile (started when I was 18 with the US Army). The goal of this blog has changed a bit over the years. Initially, it was a general blog where I wrote thoughts down. Then it changed to focus on the Oracle Database, Oracle Enterprise Manager, and eventually Oracle GoldenGate.
