This section describes the new features that were provided in Directory Proxy Server 7.0.
Entry aggregation enables the following:
Optimization of queries to a secondary data view
Searching on a secondary data view first, if required
Improved handling of large result sets (VLV control)
Request grouping to secondary data source
The JDBC data view now supports Date and Blob.
Directory Proxy Server now uses a new logging engine implementation that performs more efficiently on multi-core systems.
New criteria based on LDAP groups
Management of the maximum throughput per second
New type of data view to address more use cases, for example, company mergers.
An enhanced regex distribution algorithm is added, as described in Configuring Pattern Matching Distribution Algorithm in Oracle Fusion Middleware Administration Guide for Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition.
To optimize the performance of searches of a join data view, Directory Proxy Server makes use of Virtual List View (vlv) indexes. It helps you to avoid the scenario where search hits the size limits due to the lots of entries from one data source and very few from the others. To use VLV indexes, see Browsing Index in Oracle Fusion Middleware Reference for Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition.
