Applies to:

JDBC - Version 12.1.0.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

What is the best way to renew database certificate seamlessly so that zero downtime can be achieved ?

Description
Oracle JDBC driver that supports SSL is being used, and JDBC driver is configured to connect to the listener using one SSL certificate.
There are multiple sites - HO and DR - having a MAA configuration.

When the certificate expires at one site, rotation of primary database to alternate site is done so that the application can continue to operate.
It has been ensured that SSL certificates at both sites do not expire on the same day.
There is a need to configure the JDBC URL to support multiple certificates so that the application and database can continue to work while the standby certificate is reissued / renewed.
