Question Regarding Golden Gate

We are currently using 10gR2 on Solaris moving to Linux.  Currently the plan is to remain on 10gR2 then in September upgrade to 11gR2.  My question is if we instead immediately installed 11gR2  could Golden Gate be configured to move/replicate data from the current 10gR2 install on Solaris directly to a 11gR2 install on Solaris?

yes, that will do.. As Golden Gate is a technology offered by oracle, it supports all the OS where the Oracle resides, yeah you might need to configure it in a different way depending on the flavour of the operating system.. but you idea will work..

you can simulate it with a test database..

create a test database on 11gR2 on solaris and configure the GG to see whether the replication is happening or not..

after upgrade your db (currently on 10g) will resemble pretty much the same as 11g which you would have already tested(if you go with this approach)

you can check the docs for a detailed set of instructions of configuring a GG on Solaris here
