SymmetricDS promises to sync your data, but how do you know it really worked? How do you really know 2 databases are in sync? Or, maybe you have well-meaning users that come along after the sync, changing data unexpectedly, and throwing production out of whack.

Whatever the case, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to compare any 2 databases, and know exactly what the differences are and be able to prove they are in sync? That’s where a new, experimental feature of SymmetricDS comes in. It’s called simply dbcompare. Dbcompare is slated for SymmetricDS 3.8, but if you watch closely, it’s fully included starting in SymmetricDS 3.7.30.

In addition to replicating data changes from source to target you may also wish to populate a table on the target to monitor all events.  In this blog I will show you how to create a simple load filter that will record all changes captured by SymmetricDS into a simple audit table.

JumpMind had another successful trip to NRF in New York City last week. It was very nice to see some of our current SymmetricDS clients face to face and catch up with how the product is working as their data synchronization solution. We also had the opportunity to enjoy some of the fine dining in the city with a couple of our partners. It is always enjoyable to get the chance to sit down and discuss how we can work together and satisfy the data synchronization and integration needs of our clients.

While revving up for a busy and exciting 2016, we thought it would be a good time to look back at JumpMind’s accomplishments in 2015.

It has been a busy year! Our first priority is always supporting our existing customers. In 2015 we continued to provide the high level of support our customers deserve. We've been on the other end of bad support calls, and we never want our customers to experience that with us. The product development team continues to be actively engaged in supporting SymmetricDS so when you ask a question, you get an answer you know you can trust.

What better way to ring in the New Year than with a new kind of deployment for SymmetricDS? (Well, there might be better ways, but...) We've been working on a brand-new SymmetricDS client, written purely in good-old ANSI C.

Both Oracle Advanced Replication and SymmetricDS provide database replication, which is a valuable tool for improving access to critical data that drives a business. While some common replication concepts are used across both products, there are some differences in terminology and configuration. Let's take a look at some of the scenarios for database replication and how both products accomplish them.
