We're trying to find a way to test Oracle's new Identity Manager software and are unable to script a successful connection using Robot.

Rational has a "known issue" with OIM and has requested a performance enhancement to remedy the situation.

In the meantime.....

Anyone have an idea on a possible workaround?

We're executing a small SQLPlus query but OIM bypasses the tnsnames.ora file and is supposed to get its information from ldap to direct it to the Identity Manager which in turn routes the request to the appropriate database once it confirms permissions.

One idea would be for Robot to encapsulate a linux script performing the sqlplus command, but I'm not even sure that will solve the problem.

Just kicking the tires...

Any info is appreciated!
