This section explains how to select a state as of which to publish Oracle databases.
You can select either of the following states:
- The latest available state
To publish data as of the latest state in the backup file.
- The point-in-time state
To publish data as of the selected point-in-time state (requires a log backup).
These options are available only after the initial publishing of a database to the target Oracle server, as described in Publishing to Specified Server.
When you unpublish a database, both options continue to remain until you close the application so that you can quickly republish a database if required.
