    OID/LDAP installation and configuration involves support from multiple Oracle Support groups
    and requires a separate Service Request(SR) for the respective area of support. To answer your
    general consultative questions, I recommend your review the following My Oracle Support notes.
    These articles provide general information as an alternative option for using OID/LDAP adapters
    and a central repository to replace TNSNAMES. Once you start the OID/LDAP installation and
    and configuration process, you can address specific questions with the respective group of support.

    Starting with Fusion MIddleware(FMW) 11g there is not infrastructure anymore. The database is
    created in a standalone home, after that you use RCU (in 10g MRCA) and install FMW
    Identity Management.
