OIM 11g: Plugin Update Not Visible

(Doc ID 1384756.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 03, 2016

Applies to:

Identity Manager - Version: and later   [Release: 11g and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


While implementing java custom event handlers and tasks for OIM, tasks and events handlers are developed with eclipse and zipped into "/opt/app/oracle/Middleware/Oracle_IDM1/server/plugins" OIM server folder using the standard documented method. The procedure worked fine until:

- for the already registered in OIM: when applying code modification to the java classes and deploying the zip file, OIM doesn’t import and execute the updated plugin but the run the older version.
- all is working fine if one creates news events handlers and tasks: these are correctly registered and any modification applied on the plug-in is taken in account from OIM

The following actions were also made without success:
- restart OIM application
- PurgeCache the MDS cache
- unregister the plug-in classes with the "ant –f pluginregistration.xml register" console command
- rebuild of the whole java project in eclipse
