This preface introduces you to the Oracle Identity Manager Tools Reference Guide discussing the intended audience and conventions of this document. It also includes a list of related Oracle documents.


This is a transitional release following Oracle's acquisition of Thor Technologies. Some parts of the product and documentation still refer to the original Thor company name and Xellerate product name and will be rebranded in future releases.


The Oracle Identity Manager Tools Reference Guide is intended for users of the Oracle Identity Manager Java client application. It is geared toward developers, who are responsible for creating adapters, and for Oracle Identity Manager Administrators, who attach these adapters to process tasks, forms that come packaged with Oracle Identity Manager, and user-created forms.

For further details on how to configure Oracle Identity Manager, refer to the Oracle Identity Manager Administrative and User Console Guide.

This documentation is available in HTML format, and contains markup to facilitate access by the disabled community. Accessibility standards will continue to evolve over time, and Oracle is actively engaged with other market-leading technology vendors to address technical obstacles so that our documentation can be accessible to all of our customers.
