Publishing Latest or Point-in-Time State

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.
