The goal behind this driver is to provide a way to assign a period of validity for a Group Membership for a given user, something that is not supported out of the box by eDirectory. In the example an Oracle application is used because it provides some self-polling for the validity interval. I could have use Microsoft SQL Server or DB2, or another database.
This driver is based on the example coming with JDBC 1.6 driver for Oracle, which uses some Oracle side tables (EMP, EVENTLOG, etc). It works with Nsure Identity Manager 2. Some minor modifications would allow it to run on DirXML 1.1a, since no Nsure Identity Manager 2 specific features are leveraged.
It is required to obtain classes12.zip and nls_charset12.zip from http://otn.oracle.com as specified in the documentation for the driver.
