Installation, Upgrade, and Removal
Oracle GoldenGate is a great tool for migrations, real-time replications, and data integration projects. For a tool that is great on so many levels, it does change over time. This is evident with the way Oracle GoldenGate has changed between the releases from 11g to 12c. In the past, Oracle GoldenGate was simply installed by unzipping the binaries to the location where it needed to be installed. With the latest release of Oracle GoldenGate 12c, this has changed; Oracle now provides an Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) for installation. This chapter covers how to install Oracle GoldenGate using the OUI that is packaged with Oracle GoldenGate 12c (22.214.171.124), how to use the same OUI to upgrade to a minor patch version (126.96.36.199), and how to remove the software if desired.
