Novell recently released the new Identity Manager Integration Module for SOAP. This driver meets the needs of customers seeking connectivity and identity synchronization with Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP)-based applications - including Directory Service Markup Language (DSML) and Service Provisioning Markup Language (SPML) - and extending to other SOAP-enabled application protocols in the future.

As organizations adopt Web services and XML standards, XML/SOAP is replacing proprietary application program interfaces for data interchange:

  • SOAP is an XML-based protocol that enables applications to exchange information over HTTP.
  • DSML is an XML standard that provides XML interfaces to directories and is supported by Novell eDirectory as well as Novell exteNd Composer.
  • SPML is an evolving standard in the provisioning space. It provides a way for provisioning servers to communicate with each other as well as with standardized agents within enterprise resource systems and other applications.
