I'm not sure if this is too late for you, but I do have a custom authentication scheme that I can share which should work with Oracle Access Manager. I was going to blog about it, but I can get it to you sooner if necessary.
I'm at Oracle OpenWorld this week and won't have a chance to get to this. However, I'll do my best to blog about this and share this custom authentication scheme next week. I hope that's okay.
I haven't forgotten about this. I have just been setting up OAM myself and vetting this before communicating about it. I fully intend to blog about this, but it's just taking some time.
If you need this urgently, just let me know and I can share the custom authentication scheme with you. This, combined with a WebGate for Oracle HTTP Server, should work for you with OAM.
Thanks for your reply. I think I have to wait for your blog, but if you can please share your custom authentication scheme with me as soon as possible.
In my configuration I use APEX 4.0 and APEX Listener on WebLogic. I hope there would be no differences with your implementation.

+1 on your custom auth scheme please.
I'm in a similar situation... have OHS/Web-Gate + Oracle Access Manager on top of my stack and would like to use it to provide Single Sign On to my APEX applications.
Any hints or pointers very much appreciated.
I also have WebGate for Oracle HTTP Server and would like to use SSO with OAM for my APEX 4.0 application with addition of BI Publisher.
Could you please share you custom authentication scheme with me?
Although I wanted to have something more formal and "official", I did not want to delay any further. I've been having issues getting going with OAM 11g, hence my delay. I have newfound respect for customers who have the patience to figure all of this out.
The header variable authentication scheme is listed at: http://joelkallman.blogspot.com/2010/10/custom-authentication-scheme-for-oracle.html
As I mention in my blog post, an Oracle consultant very kindly put together a step-by-step document of how to get this to work with OAM 10g and Application Express. Once I get his okay, I'll also share his document.
I hope this is of some help.
