This chapter describes how to use the ICF API, which lets you call ICF connector implementations from your application. The chapter demonstrates creating a connector facade, required for applications to access connectors, and then how to call the various ICF operations from your application.
Before You Start
Before you can use an ICF connector in your application, you must download the ICF framework libraries, and the required connector bundles.
The easiest way to start using the ICF framework, from Java, is to use the sample Maven project file as a starting point. This sample project includes comprehensive comments about its use.
To use a .NET connector remotely, you must install the .NET remote connector server, as described in Set Up a .NET RCS. You must also download and install the specific connectors that you want to use from the ForgeRock BackStage download site.
You can now start integrating the connector with your application.
