Man is a stream whose source is hidden

I’d like to direct your attention to Chen Shapira’s latest blog entry, in which she talks about Oracle Streams.  Having been a replication aficionado for years, I’ve always been interested in Streams, but slightly awed by their complexity and flexibility.  I’m looking forward to the follow-up entries, as I’ve recently begun working with them myself.  Perhaps we can all add to the collective knowledge on them.  I can say this, you’ll be learning a lot about things you may not have played with before: Advanced Queuing (especially propagation), LogMiner, and (coolest of all, in my opinion) networked DataPump (in 10g and up).  Just try to keep focused on what you’re trying to do and break Streams down into Capture processing, Propagation processing and Apply processing.  Even though it’s about the older Advanced Replication, you may even want to read my old paper.
