These days I am working at a customer that is deploying Oracle Access Manager, Oracle Directory Server, and Oracle Waveset. The customer has many geographically separate sites running Access Manager and Directory server locally. The work flow activities and user self service occur at a centrally deployed Waveset server at the headquarters. However, they still want to have the ability to do some provisioning activities even when connectivity between the remote site and the headquarters is unavailable. The best solution we have found is OpenPTK.
OpenPTK stands for Open Provisioning Toolkit. It is a framework purpose built for light weight provisioning tasks. The architecture is loosely coupled and flexible enough to support many different types of user repositories. For us, it is providing a great head start on development of a custom solution for this customer that will be simple to deploy, easy to maintain, and easy to use.
