Hi,

I'm using snapshot for this.
Just simple, not updatable.
(but our database is not too big, just to give the discoverer users their own database)

Be carefull with the update process, can take a lot of resources.

Basic snapshot: (ok there is some environment and init stuff but that well documented.)
1) create a logfile in source database
2) create db link in target
3) create snapshot ( select * from xxx@link)
(creates update process as well.)
If you use OEM 2.1 then there is a wizzard for this.
(in Oracle 8.1.7 it's part of the DBA studio)


good luck.
J.

Running OLTP system on 7.3.4.5 and DataWarehouse on 8.1.7 had problems in replication. We wanted just to change the changes only to the Warehouse on  a weekly basis ( No Complete Refreshes). Created 2 synonyms for the table and inserted data into synonym 1 in week1 and then synonym 2 in week 2 . Ran a Delta between the two and inserted changes only. Crude but works

Sanjayraj,

i've been doing that here (prod 7.3.4) Snapshot 8.1.7,
no problem at all (exept a lot of tables without primary key, so i have to use Rowid for the fast update)
