How to use Change Data Capture in Oracle (Step 1/4) Learn how to implement a Change Data Capture (CDC) in Oracle

Data warehousing involves the extraction and transportation of data from one or more databases into a target system or systems for analysis. But this involves the extraction and transportation of huge volumes of data and is very expensive in both resources and time.

The ability to capture only the changed source data and to move it from a source to a target system(s) in real time is known as Change Data Capture (CDC). Capturing changes reduces traffic across a network and thus helps reduce ETL time.

With this serie of four tutorials, you will learn how to implement a Change Data Capture under Oracle:
- [How to use Change Data Capture in Oracle (Step 1/4)]
- [How to use Change Data Capture in Oracle (Step 2/4)]
- [How to use Change Data Capture in Oracle (Step 3/4)]
- [How to use Change Data Capture in Oracle (Step 4/4)]

Release Notes:
A new type of CDC has been integrated in Talend Integration Suite 3.2.

The new CDC -only available now on Oracle and AS400- is based on the log file. As a consequence, the redo log mode is less intrusive than the Trigger mode, generated by Talend.The DBA will appreciate more this CDC version that the older.
