3.0 out of 5 stars Just like the documentation 5 Jan 2012
By michael - Published on
As a beginner in Golden Gate, I purchased the book to learn more than what is provided in the documentation or available on the web. Sadly, this was not the case. Of importance and missing from the book is bi-directional replication and conflict resolution.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for the Expert series 8 Oct 2012
By MarkNY - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm not sure of the meaning of this book's title: Expert ...
If this means the book was written by experts, that most likely is true. But, if this means the book is for experts or the book will make you an expert, that is definitely false. If you never worked with GoldenGate and need a quick overview of the product, then buy this book because it will give you a very good introduction to the functionality and usage of GoldenGate. Otherwise the book is not for you. Just One example: the troubleshooting section covers very little. Anyone who worked with GoldenGate and had to troubleshoot it definitely had to use logdump, this book doesn't even touch on the basics of navigating the trails with logdump. Similar comments, i.e. very brief and not in-depth, could be made about some other important sections.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction 16 Oct 2011
By LIJU P OOMMEN - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
GoldenGate is a great product. This book gives you an introduction to GoldenGate (GG).

The strengths of GG are fast replication to heterogeneous databases, (single or multiple target database(s , bi-directional replication and performance.

This book gives brief introduction to most of the areas, thus can be used for getting an introduction to GoldenGate. Since not many books are available in this topic, this is a great book in that respect.

Some of the important areas that are lacking in this book are :

1) Details on bi-directional replication, (this book have 1-2 pages on this area)
a Was expecting more coverage on conflict identification
b) Conflict resolution (with examples for various CRUD)
c) Macro programming
d) Invocation of stored procedure for conflict identification and resolution
2) External module invocation
3) Not enough examples on most of the areas
4) Discussion about types of conflicts that can occur in a multi-master replication and related examples
5) Best practice
6) Performance tips and tricks

If you are looking for fundamentals of GoldenGate, the authors have done justice and the book is well written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction 27 Aug 2011
By Steve Callan - Published on
There are (as of time of this post) two books on the market for GoldenGate and if you need to start with one, the Apress book is it (there are some good points in the Packt book, but this one is more extensive).

The book provides some very good detailed examples, especially the one dealing with how to split or parallelize an existing setup. From installation to planning for migration, the book does a great job of explaining what needs to be done when and where. There is coverage of heterogeneous replication, but it is not as extensive as the coverage for Oracle, but the main show in town for this is Oracle, so keep that in mind if you are looking at how to replicate between Teradata and MySQL.

The writing is clear and not cluttered with extraneous content. The accuracy is also quite good, minus one detail (the default port for the Manager is 7809, not 7840, as stated several times throughout the book). The editors missed Goldengate versus GoldenGate, and Weblogic versus WebLogic several times - the point of this being that you have to look somewhat hard to find mistakes, and there aren't many.

Overall, if you are new to GoldenGate, this book will provide you with a great start on getting up and running in no time at all. You can use the demo_ora_create/insert/misc SQL scripts that come with GoldenGate if you need some scripts and data to get things going.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good "How-To" book 22 Sep 2011
By Sauron - Published on
I was offered a chance to review this book as an independent reviewer. I'll first provide the positives and then the negative to get to why I wish I can give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

It provides an excellent overview of the Goldengate software, its components, and the power of its scripting language. The examples were thorough and provides an excellent overview of the steps necessary to install, setup, and use this software for replication. I was pleased with the technical depth of the chapters and providing the places to look for additional information. This is not a complete manual on Goldengate (that's Oracle's job), however, it does provide a good starting point for most of what you would consider using it for, and then you can get into more depth with the Oracle documentation. The coverage of what you can do with the scripts is well covered throughout the text.

Now for the minor criticism about this book. While this is a technically oriented book providing detail on using this software, I think there should have been more effort to "sell" the reader on why they should choose Goldengate over the alternatives. Other than a few brief paragraphs mentioning Oracle's other replication products (i.e. Basic/Advanced replication, Streams) there was hardly any effort on defining why it would be better to choose Goldengate vs. those other approaches. There may be reasons where one of the other products would fit certain types of requirements better. However, a comparison of features/capabilities between the products (or that of competitors) and Goldengate would be of great assistance. Many DBA's might need this kind of info to sell the idea to their management on, for example, using Goldengate vice Streams. Since this is a niche product compared to general database usage, any assistance in helping to guide them toward deciding on using this product is helpful.

All that said, for those who are planning on implementing Oracle Goldengate, this book provides an excellent head start toward success!
