Installing Data Sync
Data Sync stores sensitive information, including connection information to our on-premises databases. It is recommended that we only install Data Sync in protected environments where the operating system and file system privileges are tightly controlled.
Install Java Development Kit (JDK) 1.7 or later
Data Sync doesn’t work with Java Runtime Environment (JRE). We must install JDK.
Steps for installing and configuring Data Sync:
Download Data Sync from Oracle Technology Network:
Unzip BICSDataSync_Vx_x.Zip to a directory with no spaces in its name.
Open config.bat (Windows) or config.sh (Linux or Unix).
Replace @JAVA_HOME with the directory where JDK is installed.
Copy any database-specific JDBC drivers that we need to Data Sync’s \lib directory.
Data Sync installs Oracle JDBC driver 11.2.x. If we want to connect to a different database (for example, Microsoft SQL Server or DB2) or if you want to use a different Oracle driver from the default version, obtain and manually copy the required files to the \lib directory
