What is GoldenGate Initial Load?
Before Starting any Oracle GoldenGate Online Replication, we should see to that both Source and Target are in Sync. There are different techniques or methods to achieve this.
The GoldenGate offers a technique called Initial Load which is used to synchronize both Source and Target databases. This is the first step in the Oracle GoldenGate data replication.
An amazing feature given by the GoldenGate is the ability for the Change Synchronization that keeps track of the Online transactional change during the Initial Load is being run. These change synchronization processes runs concurrently with the Initial Load which are later reconciled with the Initial Load.
