Data acquisition

Each probe uses a different method to acquire data. Which method the probe uses depends on the target system from which it receives data.

Acquiring data using the JDBC Probe consists of the following basic steps:
  1. Setting the connection parameters.
  2. Setting the authentication parameters.
  3. Specifying an appropriate SELECT statement.
  4. Setting the resynchronization parameters.
Note: Before running the probe, you must have installed the JDBC drivers for your operating system. A list of the JDBC drivers is included in the Gateway for JDBC Reference Guide.

Full details of how the probe acquires data are described in the following topics:
