We are about a week out at this point from the Percona Live MySQL conference, held in Santa Clara, California, and JumpMind is getting excited about it. As one of JumpMind's founders, I will be presenting a session on SymmetricDS at the conference, and JumpMind will also be revealing its newly-designed exhibit booth at the conference as well. We are putting the finishing touches on our presentation currently, in fact. The presentation will include a good summary of all the features and ways to use SymmetricDS and will also reveal a few new features and dialects that many people do not yet know about! Watch for tweets throughout the week of April 22nd as we reveal upcoming features, both big and small, in SymmetricDS.

Real-time data integration is being increasingly used by companies to improve their business and better serve their customers. Traditional batch systems are being converted to real-time systems that process transactions as they occur. The advantages include improved knowledge of how business is performing and offering services that outperform competitors. An architecture with real-time information and on-demand processing can have a huge payback for certain business scenarios.

The professional version of SymmetricDS 3.2 was released, and it includes a lot of great features and improvements. Let's go through some of the most important ones first, and then I'll show you some of my favorite hidden gems.

Bridge data between databases with data synchronization by using channels to re-order data when the dependencies in each database are different. Each application can model its data differently, so a parent row in one database might map to a child row in another one. Instead of using data transformation to lookup and add dependent data, the order of captured data can be changed to match the constraints of the target database.

From time to time we are approached with the question of how to do initial loads of data in two directions with SymmetricDS, not just one direction. This feature is available in SymmetricDS and isn't hard to configure. An understanding of how initial loads work in general, combined with a few settings, is all that is needed. This article will walk you through a tutorial on initial loads in general and will then discuss the configuration needed to do a 'reverse' initial load.
