8,620,862 - Method for ensuring referential integrity in replication engines by serializing base level change queue data

Abstract:

A method is provided for processing base level data of a change queue that is not serialized at the logical level. The base level change queue data is transaction data previously posted to a source database. A logical replication engine is provided to replicate and post the change queue data to a target database in the order that the transaction data is stored in the change queue. Upon detection in the logical replication engine of change queue data that is not serialized at the logical level, the change queue data is reserialized at the logical level before the logical replication engine applies the change queue data to the target database. The change queue data that is not serialized at the logical level may be posted to the target database using asynchronous database access.
