Oracle Streems

is data capturing tool
it reads the redo log files to capture the data ..it captures the chnaged data i.e if you have a source database and a target database or application which needs constant near realtime data from the source streems will constantly read redo logs and capture the chnages and pass it to staging ..in staging we can manuplate that data using rules and transformation logic and post the massaged data in to target application or database

its something like an ETL tool where ETL tools like informatica Ardent are much more advanced and expencive tools like streems and shareplex r reletivey cheap and easy to amintain and would achive basic replication data transformation requirements

hope this answers ur question remember strems wont support vershions of oracle before 8i ..shareplex does
