So this blog will focus on BPM Swimlane roles and users from a ADF context.
So we have an ADF Task Details Form
and we are in the process of making it richer and dynamic in
functionality. A common requirement could be to dynamically show
different areas based on the user logged into the workspace. Perhaps
even we want to know even what swim-lane role the user belongs to.
It is is a little bit harder to achieve then one thinks unless you know the trick.

There may be many reasons why it might be beneficial or necessary to configure a separate LDAP for your BPM/SOA suite implementation. Corporate LDAPs are often huge, slow, ill maintained, restricted to change and even full of circular references.
One of my customers were setting up their environments for current latest version of Oracle BPM 11g. One of the steps was to configure a directory to handle both authentication and user groups. The chosen LDAP of choice was a poor sister of Active Directory called LDS. I say poor because it is not exactly the same and the AD weblogic providers are designed to work with the elder brother. Therefore the standard procedure of setting up a AD provider just didn't work with LDS, because of some missing attributes in LDS. But I made it work anyway. This is how I did it.
