VPAT® Version 2.0 - October 2017

Name of Product:

Oracle GoldenGate 18.1

Product Description:

Oracle GoldenGate is a comprehensive software package for enabling the replication of data in heterogeneous data environments. The product set enables high availability solutions, real-time data integration, transactional change data capture, data replication, transformations, and verification between operational and analytical enterprise systems.

This VPAT covers Oracle GoldenGate (for Oracle), Oracle GoldenGate for Mainframe, and Oracle GoldenGate for Non Oracle Database.

Oracle GoldenGate (for Oracle) is installed with Oracle Universal Installer (OUI). 

Oracle GoldenGate for Non-Oracle Database and Mainframe are not installed with Oracle Universal installer (OUI).

accessible_ww@oracle.com

Notes:

This VPAT does not cover the following areas of the product:

  • Oracle Universal Installer (OUI):  This is the technology used to install Oracle GoldenGate for Oracle. The alternative is to use the silent install option for OUI which is command-line interface.
  • The Oracle GoldenGate Microservices Architecture (MA) and associated embedded HTML5 interfaces are not covered in this VPAT.  Alternate methods of implementing GoldenGate can be achieved through the GGSCI and AdminClient Command Line Interfaces (CLI).
  • Oracle GoldenGate documentation available in the following formats are excluded: PDF Documentation

Accessibility mode can not be configured through the CLI interface.

It is recommended that accessibility features are turned on in the terminal or interface that is being used to access the AdminClient or GGSCI features of the product.

Evaluation Methods Used:

Oracle's policy is to design, develop and test both products and documentation to be accessible. The recommended styles of testing for accessibility include: (i) algorithmic automated tests, (ii) human judgement tests such as tool-assisted tests, visual inspection and manual operation, and (iii) testing with assistive technology by people with and without disabilities. Additional information about Oracle's accessibility program is available on http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/accessibility/index.html
