Identity Manager 8.1 (or later) contains support for a very cool open source connector framework. The project name isn't too exciting (Identity Connectors ? definitely needs some marketing love ) but the end result is fantastic.
I had the experience of porting my IdM legacy adapter for Google Apps to this new framework. The API is much simpler (no depedencies on IdM or any other product), and the concepts are clean and well thought out. Just what one would expect from a team that a has a few decades of experience building connectors.
You can download the google apps connector, along with many other bundles here.
Feedback is most welcome
