Oracle Access Manager - Version 220.127.116.11.0 and later Information in this document applies to any platform.
In past versions or the Oracle Access Manager product (OAM 11g to 18.104.22.168.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 22.214.171.124.x), the Access Manager server (126.96.36.199.x) now has the ability to communicate with the 188.8.131.52.0 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 184.108.40.206.x WebGates that are certified against the 220.127.116.11.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.
