My colleague Maarten Smeets recently published a very good article on the first steps with the SOA Suite 12c LDAP adapter (https://technology.amis.nl/2014/08/08/oracle-soa-suite-12c-ldapadapter-tutorial).

Lucas Jellema 3

An interesting aspect of that configuration is the loading of the GMail SSL certificate into the Keystore used by WebLogic, in order for the SSL based interaction with GMail to successfully […]
