I'm thinking of configuring Application Continuity for my 2 node RAC (12c) database where my application is running on Weblogic server. Before I proceed with the setup of AC, I need to clarify/confirm few things regarding AC:
- AC does not require any changes on my application code. This is one of the reasons i'm going with AC because i'm using thin drivers where I cannot use TAF and I do not want FCF as that requires application code changes making it RAC aware. I believe all that is required is to only create a service for AC on my RAC server.
1.(a) Does enabling FCF add advantage in addition to AC?
The link in 29th pages says FCF is mandatory — I need to reconfirm on that.
Is it mandatory to use FCF with AC? If yes why? If no, I should be fine I guess.
Are there any specific changes I should make in Weblogic server if I'm using AC? My Weblogic server could be a cluster/standalone and i'm using normal data source only.
