Bidirectional replication

Bidirectional replication enables organizations to synchronize data between two endpoints (henceforth referred to as Endpoint A and Endpoint B), ensuring that both endpoints contain identical records. The endpoints can either be the same type (e.g. Oracle-to-Oracle) or different types (e.g. Microsoft SQL Server-to-Oracle). To implement bidirectional replication, two Bidirectional Replication tasks need to be defined: one that captures changes made to Endpoint A and replicates them to Endpoint B (Task 1) and another that captures changes made to Endpoint B and replicates them to Endpoint A (Task 2). An explanation of how to set up these tasks is provided in the following sections.
