TRAILCHARSET parameter to supply a character set for the source data if the trail is written by an Extract version that is earlier than 184.108.40.206.0. In the earlier versions, the source character set is not stored in the trail.
TRAILCHARSET is used, Replicat uses the specified character set as the source character set when converting character-type columns to the target character set. Replicat issues a warning message when it uses the
TRAILCHARSET character set.
By default, Replicat performs character set conversion. This feature is controlled by the
CHARSETCONVERSION (default) and
NOCHARSETCONVERSION parameters. To use
NOCHARSETCONVERSION cannot be used.
TRAILCHARSET source_charset [, REPLACEBADCHAR];
The ICU character-set identifier or an Oracle character-set identifier of the source database. For Oracle databases, Oracle GoldenGate converts an Oracle identifier to the corresponding ICU identifier for conversion to the character set that is specified with the
NLS_LANG specification in the
SETENV parameter in the Replicat parameter file.
Prevents Replicat from abending when a conversion attempt fails. The failed character is replaced with a replacement character for each target character set. The replacement character is pre-defined in each character set.
