Has Anyone configured Oracle GoldenGate for HA w/Oracle Clusterware ?

I am looking for some perspective of real world cases with respects to configuring Oracle GoldenGate 11.2 for HA with Oracle Clusterware

I have seen essentially two methods for this configuration:

<OL><LI>Using the Bundled Agents (XAG) with Clusterware , specifically the agent for GoldenGate</LI>

<LI>Using crsctl to add the GoldenGate instance process(s) as standard application cluster resources , configured with application action script(s).</LI></OL>

I have reviewed both options covered in these documents and either seem like they'd work fine.

Option 1 covered in this doc which came out in Sept 2012:

Option 2 covered in this doc which was released in March 2013:

Its curious to see that Option 2, which does not use the agents is the more recent doc.

Also, as some background information, I have a 2 node Grid Infrastructure cluster on OEL 6.3. On this 2 node cluster, I am running an single instance Oracle database configured for HA as an application cluster resource; similar to the configuration defined in this doc:

My plan is to implement GoldenGate Integrated capture on the same cluster..either on the same node as the database, or on the 2nd node as a Downstream Integrated Capture instance.

I can see some benefits of both options, and was curious to know if anyone has this type of configuration running in an active dev/test/prod environment.
If so, was there a decision point that made one option better than the other ?
