OIM 11g R2: Sample Code for Custom Schedule Task along with xml

Below is the sample code for Scheduler which prints "Running the OIM Sample Scheduled Task..." in OIM Domain log file when ever it get executed. Print statement inside execute method need be replaced with business logic for performing other tasks.

plugin.xml (This needs to be zipped along with Lib(which contains schedule task jar file))

OIMSampleScheduledTask.xml (Need to be placed in MDS export db folder)

WLST Cmd error, The input line is too long.

Error while running wlst.cmd command :


Process started

The input line is too long.
wlst > C:\Oracle\MIDDLE~1\JDEVEL~1\common\bin\setJrfWlstEnv.cmd was unexpected at this time.


Make sure that all paths are correct, in the above error this error will be resolved by providing correct path of setJrfWlstEnv.cmd file. 

This Error occurs due to invalid path or invalid file location.
