Information in this document applies to any platform.


When adding a model to an existing (Changed Data Capture) CDC Consistent Set Journalization with knowledge module "JKM Oracle to Oracle Consistent (OGG Online)" on Oracle Data Integrator (ODI), all the existing J$ tables are dropped after the Journal "restart".
