Last updated on MAY 17, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Access Manager - Version 12.2.1.4.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

In past versions or the Oracle Access Manager product (OAM 11g to 12.2.1.3.x), the Access Manager server communicated with the WebGate (WG) using the Oracle Access Protocol (OAP), which leverages the “Transport” (TCP) network layer.

Starting with Oracle Access Manager (OAM 12.2.1.4.x), the Access Manager server (12.2.1.4.x) now has the ability to communicate with the 12.2.1.4.0 WebGates (WG) using the OAP over Rest, which leverages the “Application” network layer using HTTP(s) and continues to use  Oracle Access Protocol (OAP), which leverages the “Transport” (TCP) network layer to communicate with the non 12.2.1.4.x WebGates that are certified against the 12.2.1.4.x oam server.

The scope of this note is to provide a basic understanding of the Oracle Access Manager (OAM) communication methods Oracle Access Protocol (OAP) VS. OAP over Rest.
