What is being announced?
In Oracle WebCenter Sites 12c (188.8.131.52.0), Oracle announces the deprecation of IBM DB2 certification, with the intent to remove it from future Oracle WebCenter Sites releases.
What do you need to do?
IBM DB2 will not be certified on an Oracle WebCenter Sites release succeeding 184.108.40.206.0. Customers are advised to use one of the certified databases with Oracle WebCenter Sites as per the certification matrix. Customers using IBM DB2 will have to move their Oracle WebCenter Sites schema from DB2 to one of the certified databases using the tools that the latter may provide. For those Oracle WebCenter Sites customers that use Oracle WebCenter Content, they should also move their Oracle WebCenter Content schema from IBM DB2, to a certified database as previously mentioned. Additionally, such customers must recreate security roles once the data migration is complete. This deprecation has no impact on Oracle WebCenter Sites licensing.
What are the recommended alternatives and migration steps?
Please see the certification matrix "Support Scope for WebCenter Sites When Schema Migrated to Different Database (e.g. from Oracle DB to MS SQL)" (Doc ID 2188214.1) for a list of certified databases with Oracle WebCenter Sites.
The KM article "Support Scope for WebCenter Sites When Schema Migrated to Different Database (e.g. from Oracle DB to MS SQL)" (Doc ID 2188214.1) has detail on database schema migration for Oracle WebCenter sites
