This chapter describes the logical change record (LCR) types. In Streams, LCRs are message payloads that contain information about changes to a database.

When you use Streams, the capture process captures changes in the form of LCRs and enqueues them into a queue. These LCRs can be propagated from a queue in one database to a queue in another database. Finally, the apply process can apply LCRs at a destination database. You also have the option of creating, enqueuing, and dequeuing LCRs manually.
