I’ve been spending a lot of time working with Oracle Identity Manager (OIM) lately and I’m putting together some walkthroughs / tips and tricks on working with the product.Â I’ll start with a quick and short one today.Â Sometimes DBA’s get wild hairs, I think its in their nature, the just decide they want to rename a database and tell all the developers that they need to make updates to their code / jdbc data sources to reflect that.Â Inside an OIM deploy with OC4J there are two files you need to change to make this happen.Â They are:
- <OH>/j2ee/<oim container>/config/data-sources.xml (2 places)
- <OIM HOME>/xellerate/config/xlconfig.xml (1 place)
If you search for ‘jdbc:oracle’ in each of the files you should be able to find these references pretty quickly.Â These are also the places you need to modify things if you are migrating into a RAC environment or if your IP address / hostname / port change on the database.
Hopefully I’ll have something with more meet to post this weekend.
