The following is a list of new features in Oracle Directory Integration Platform 11g Release 1 (11.1.1):
Back-end Directory Support for Oracle Unified Directory and Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition—As of 11g Release 1 (126.96.36.199) you have three directories to choose from when establishing a back-end directory. In addition to Oracle Internet Directory (OID), which previously was the only back-end directory option available, you can now choose Oracle Unified Directory (OUD) or Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition (ODSEE) as your Oracle Directory Integration Platform back-end directory. Both OUD and ODSEE support directory synchronization, but not provisioning. (Oracle Internet Directory (OID) still supports both directory synchronization and provisioning.) See Section 1.4.1, "Oracle Directory Integration Platform Back-End Directory" for additional information about the back-end directory.
Oracle Directory Integration Platform as a J2EE Application—As of 11g Release 1 (11.1.1), Oracle Directory Integration Platform runs as a J2EE application. For more information, see "Oracle Directory Integration Platform".
Integration with Fusion Middleware Control for Monitoring and Management—In 11g Release 1 (11.1.1), you can use Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control to monitor and manage Oracle Directory Integration Platform. For more information, see "Managing Oracle Directory Integration Platform Using Fusion Middleware Control".
Updated Command Line Tools Using WebLogic Scripting Tools (WLST)—Command line tools for Oracle Directory Integration Platform were updated in 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) to use the WebLogic Scripting Tool (WLST) framework. Although the command line tools use the WLST framework, you do not have to execute the commands using a
wlst prefix. For more information, see "Command-Line Tools for Administering Oracle Directory Integration Platform".
Custom Plug-in Support to Extend Data Transformation (Mapping)—Oracle Directory Integration Platform 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) provides custom plug-in support to extend data transformation (mapping) functionality. This feature allows you to create and implement custom plug-ins for situations such as when you need to support new mapping operations and multiple literal values. For more information, see "Extending Mappings Using Custom Plug-ins".
Domain and Attribute Exclusion in Map Files—Oracle Directory Integration Platform 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) includes functionality that allows you to identify domains and attributes to be excluded during bootstrap and synchronization. See "Excluding Domains" and "Excluding Attributes" for more information.
Custom Connector Support—Oracle Directory Integration Platform 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) provides support for custom synchronization connectors. For more information on writing custom inbound and outbound connectors for Oracle Directory Integration Platform, see "Writing Custom Synchronization Connectors".
