Willing to extend OUD functionalities?

While OUD provides a very reach set of features for directory services, you might have a specific requirement that OUD cannot address straight out of the box.

Plug-in API is designed to enrich the service to address those needs.

General concepts are explained in Oracle Fusion Middleware Developer’s Guide for Oracle Unified Directory, while reference documentation for the Plugin API is available in Oracle Unified Directory reference manual.

Examples source code for plugins were created by Sylvain Duloutre and are made available on Oracle Directory Services Plus samples page. Check also Sylvain’s blog.

Oracle Corporation
Oracle Security Solutions
We can improve our security and compliance,
at the same time we’re cutting costs and complexity.

Sun2Oracle: Upgrading from DSEE to the next generation Oracle Unified Directory

Oracle Unified Directory (OUD) is the world’s first unified directory solution with highly integrated storage, synchronization, and proxy capabilities. These capabilities help meet the evolving needs of enterprise architectures. OUD customers can lower the cost of administration and ownership by maintaining a single directory for all of their enterprise needs, while also simplifying their enterprise architecture.

OUD is optimized for mobile and cloud computing environments where elastic scalability becomes critical as service providers need a solution that can scale by dynamically adding more directory instances without re-architecting their solutions to support exponential business growth.

Join us for this webcast and you will:

  • Learn from one customer that has successfully upgraded to the new platform
  • See what technology and business drivers influenced the upgrade
  • Hear about the benefits of OUD’s elastic scalability and unparalleled performance
  • Get additional information and resources for planning an upgrade
