What's New in Oracle Workflow?
Oracle Workflow Release 2.6.2 includes the following enhancements:
- Oracle Internet Directory integration--You can synchronize the user information in your Workflow directory service with Oracle Internet Directory (OID) using Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP). This integration is recommended because it enables you to manage and publish user information in a central location which various systems can reference. OID integration also enables Oracle Workflow to synchronize with other external user directories that are synchronized with OID. See: Synchronizing Workflow Directory Services with Oracle Internet Directory.
- Single sign-on--OID integration enables Oracle Workflow to participate in single sign-on through LDAP external authentication with Oracle Portal and Oracle9iAS Single Sign-On Server. With single sign-on, a user who is logged into any participating Oracle9iAS component is automatically authenticated when accessing any other participating component and does not need to log in again. See: Synchronizing Workflow Directory Services with Oracle Internet Directory.
- Deferred subscription processing--If you do not want subscriptions for an event to be executed immediately when the event occurs, you can defer the subscriptions for asynchronous execution. In this way you can return control more quickly to the calling application and let the Event Manager execute any costly subscription processing at a later time. See: Deferred Subscription Processing.
