Hi Chirag,

Quest's SHAREPLEX is a tool, with which we can replicate databases. 
This uses the log-mining technology for synchrnozing the databases. 
Whereas, Oracle Replication uses totally a different methodology for
implementing replication it uses snapshot logs or internal triggers
for sychronizing the databases.  I would say both are parallel or
similar products using different technologies for replicating

I don't think there would be specific required just for Replication
Expert, most of them expect the regular/code DBAs to be able to manage
and adminster Replication environments, it's just an added expertise
for a DBA.  It would definitely improve the marketability of one's
candidature, compared to a DBA who has not used Replication at all.
It's definitely a 'good to have' skill.

Let me know if you need more information.
