Novell's IDM Engine#
DirXML Engine uses a Publish-Subscribe Messaging pattern
which consists of several components.
IDM Engine Flow
The Subscriber Channel
defines and controls the Subscriber Flow
of information to the Connected Application
The Publisher Channel
defines and controls the Publisher Flow
of information to EDirectory
The Translation Processor
is a part of the IDM engine that is responsible for converting information from the eDirectory domain (data format and schema structure/name) to the application domain, and vice versa.
The purpose of the Schema Mapping Policy is to map schema names (particularly attribute names and class names) between the Identity Vault namespace
and the Application namespace
Data from EDirectory
is evaluated against the Notify and Reset Subscriber Filter
and then added to the event cache prior to continuation within the Subscriber Flow
The distinction between DirXML Events and Commands
is subtle but important.
