IBM expert Ori Pomerantz has been securing computer networks (and showing others how to do it too) since 1995. Pomerantz joined IBM in 2003 and since then, he has written classes on several IBM security products, including IBM Security zSecure™. He is also a co-author of the IBM Press publication Mainframe Basics for Security Professionals: Getting Started with RACF, 2007. In this whitepaper, "IBM Tivoli Identitiy Manager 5.1: Writing Java Extensions and Application Code," Pomerantz helps you learn how to write Java modules that are called by IBM Tivoli Identity Manager.
See Download for the full white paper. The following sections outline what you will learn in the full paper.
The steps you'll learn
Pomerantz covers the following instructions in this paper:
- How to read Tivoli Identity Manager entities from your Java extensions. This includes using JavaDocs and how to search for entities.
- How to modify Tivoli Identity Manager entities. The API to modify these entities uses object classes called
<name of entity>MO(for example,
AccountMOto modify accounts).
- How to create new Tivoli Identity Manager entities; similar to the modification method.
Java source code is included in the whitepaper.
