Industrial best practices oblige the setting up of multiple IS environments in order to enforce strict and independent development, Q&A and production operations.
As a result, it is often required to set up multiple ODI (Oracle Data Integrator) environments resulting in the installation of multiple, and separate groups of ODI Repositories.
A direct consequence of such an approach is the setting up of multiple distinct Master Repositories, for example:
in a development set up: a Master and one or more attached Work Repositories;
in a production set up: a Master with its attached Work Repositories.
These two ODI environments will then be entirely independent of each other in both technical and logical terms.
However, frequent and programmable exchange is required from the development set up to the production environment in order for new developments to be installed and / or corrections applied to existing programs. Such operations will be based on the the Export - Import features of ODI.
