Oracle Data Integrator: Administration and Development

What you will learn

In this course you will get an overview of the Active Integration Platform Architecture, and a complete-walk through of the steps required to set up a Oracle Data Integrator topology. You will learn how to use Oracle Data Integrator Topology Manager to define these context and logical schema objects according to current best practices. You will learn how to use manage projects in Oracle Data Integrator to develop interfaces and other objects. Oracle Data Integrator has an advanced metadata system which can store many types of information about your data, including constraints and Slowly-Changing Dimension information. You will also learn about the types of metadata, and how to retrieve it automatically from your database.

Next, you will learn how to enrich your Oracle Data Integrator data models with more metadata that cannot be determined automatically and how to build an Active Integration Hub by using some advanced optional features. You will learn how to create an integration process, using Oracle Data Integrator packages. This course takes you through some of the more advanced features and uses of Oracle Data Integrator interfaces. You will also learn how to use Operator to stop, start and track the execution of Oracle Data Integrator sessions.

Define Physical and Logical Architecture
Create and reverse-engineer models
Manage Projects
