Sun Identity Manager 8.1 Web Services

Extending the System

You extend the schema by modifying the configuration object, and you can add executors for requests by changing the section. Using forms, you can map DSML to Views and back.

It is less obvious, but you can also replace the dispatcher, marshaller, and the UberExecutor, with those of your own devising.

SPML 2.0 provides a wide-open array of pluggability, which is due to Identity Manager’s use of the OpenSPML 2.0 Toolkit. The following figure shows the OpenSPML 2.0 Toolkit architecture.
