Question:
We have set up large CA SSO environment (SSO 12.7) with Oracle RAC 12c on the database side. 

We would like to know if the Oracle RAC 12c Application Continuity connection feature provided by the DataDirect 8.0 driver which is included in the CA Single Sign On 12.7 is supported by Siteminder.

Can you please confirm if Oracle RAC 12c Application Continuity connection feature provided by the DataDirect 8.0 is supported by CA Siteminder?
Environment:
(SSO 12.7) with Oracle RAC 12c
 
Answer:
We received the below communication from DataDirect: 

Our driver do not currently support "Application Continuity" feature offered by Oracle RAC and do not have "Replay Driver" functionality implemented for any of the query flows. 

What this means is that we clearly do not support the feature in the same flavor as the Oracle Native drivers. Our [DataDirect's] drivers implement Failover in the parlance discussed in the documentation shared earlier.
