New version of Oracle IRM HotFolders released
By Simon Thorpe on Oct 27, 2009
Oracle has built an excellent website for people to share sample code and personal projects with the Oracle community. Over the coming months we are going to be sharing a lot of code we have been using for many years to help customers build rich IRM solutions.
The first project to hit this website is our HotFolders capability which monitors folders for new content and automatically seals documents to a preconfigured classification. Martin Lambert (Oracle IRM creator and HotFolders author) has just uploaded the latest version, 1.7, of this sample project.
Access the project here, https://oracle-irm-hotfolders-java.samplecode.oracle.com/, note that you will need to register a free Oracle Technology Network account. 1.7 brings some new features;
- Post-sealing action plugins - v1.7 introduces a simple plugin architecture for extending the functionality of Oracle IRM Hot Folders. This allows Java developers to easily implement post-sealing actions for files sealed to the correct classification in designated folders (either automatically sealed by Oracle IRM Hot Folders or sealed to the correct classification before being added to the folder).
- 'Shovel' file-moving plugin - The Shovel plugin moves correctly sealed files to a new location derived from its current location by regular expression matching. A use case is where a Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solution quarantines sensitive files to a quarantine folder where it is sealed by Oracle IRM Hot Folders and then returned by the Shovel plugin to its original location. The source code for Shovel is provided to assist developers in creating their own plugins.
Keep an eye on the blog, we plan to be releasing a whole raft of new sample projects and sample code over the coming months.
