Presenting the new IDM Deployment Wizard


With the recent IDM 11gR2PS2 release Oracle has developed a new deployment tool that aims to automate and reduce the time required to install and configure Oracle Identity and Access Management Components.

In this post we are going to present the benefits, supported topologies and components, and key points to keep in mind to conduct a successful IDM deployment.

Logging in OIM custom code

Proper logging is one of the main considerations during custom development. This is no different in OIM projects in which custom code is being developed and deployed to OIM. Proper logging is fundamental part of development, helping in finding issues, fixing them and also in reporting relevant runtime conditions.

This post shows how to leverage the Oracle Fusion Middleware infrastructure in which OIM runs in order to create proper logging information from custom code. It is not the intent of this post to cover all logging considerations; there are plenty of materials on the internet and book stores to cover the basics.
