5.0 out of 5 stars Get started here . . . February 25, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Pleasantly surprised; I was looking forward to this book and had very high expectations based of who was writing it. The author does a great job of covering Oracle GoldenGate (GG). The book is a quick and easy read that progresses forward in a step by step manner. This book is much better organized than the actual GG documentation. One minor thing I would of like is an image of where everything is in a recommended One-To-One "typical" replication. There was a table for "Configuration summary" but a visual of all the moving parts, the related files, and how to control/edit each file would have brought everything together visually. I see/read in pictures so this may not matter for other people.

Overall highly recommend this book. It's an easy read over a weekend. Chapter 3 and 6 show the experience of the author and the early chapters establishes the right amount of foundation without drowning a person.

Here is a one sentence break down on my impression per chapter:
Ch 1 "Getting Started" presents some history of GG and the basic architecture
Ch 2 "Installing and Preparing GoldenGate" get it, install it, and understand what you installed
Ch 3 "Design Considerations" this chapter is worth the price of the book alone and John provides his experience in written form.
Ch 4 "Configuring Oracle GoldenGate" here is where you get your hands dirty and get this really working
Ch 5 "Configuration Options" going beyond the basics
Ch 6 "Configuring GoldenGate for HA" is covers GG and RAC which is great.
Ch 7 "Advanced Configuration" good to know what you can do with the right tool
Ch 8 "Managing Oracle GoldenGate" ok got it running now keep it running and determine how well it is running
Ch 9 "Performance Tuning" make it run faster . . . what else would it be?
Ch 10 "Troubleshooting GoldenGate" nothing ever runs perfect all the time how to fix it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Be careful with book's title March 22, 2011
By Augusto
I bought the book thinking it included GoldenGate version 11.1.
I supposed 11g in title meant GoldenGate 11.1. I was wrong.
Book uses GoldenGate 10.4.0 and Database 11.1.
Moreover, the writer is very clear in his explanations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent information but still easy to read March 14, 2011
In my daily work as APEX specialist and SOA enthusiast I didn't have the chance to use Oracle GoldenGate before. So I started reading this book as a novice on the subject.
I was surprised by the huge amount of information given in this book. Almost every aspect of GoldenGate is described with abundant graphics and schematics. I really loved the introduction for each chapter that clearly explains what to expect in that chapter and the summaries at the end. It helped me to see if I really understood what the author meant to tell me in the rest of the chapter.

Even though the book is only roughly 250 pages, and it is crammed full with theory on what GoldenGate is and when and how you should use it, there is still room for some excellent examples that show you how to install and configure GoldenGate and how to use its features. Included are some very nice tips and tricks on what you can do and what you should avoid to do.

All in all an excellent book and a must-read for anyone using (or wanting to use) Oracle GoldenGate.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good companion to manuals April 17, 2011
Overall I found this book does a good job of covering how to install, configure and troubleshoot GoldenGate. However, I found it slightly weak in terms of design and planning replication solutions. As an introduction to the product, it does it's job well, but if you're looking to understand replication challenges and issues, consider looking elsewhere.
