I am trying to replicate 50 tables from one database to another using Oracle 188.8.131.52 on Sun Solaris. this will be basic replication, read only MVs.
I am reading the replication manual (which talks about ADVANCED Replication) and it says I need to set up a master site and a materialized view site, then in master site create a replication administrator, proxy administrator etc (more steps).
My previous experience in basic replication goes back to Oracle 8, at that time I only hahd to create snapshots at snapshot site and create snapshot logs at master site and create a refresh group to ensure data integrity.
In 9.2 do I really need to perform all the tasks I mentioned or I can use the old Oracle 8 way?
