- Do yourself a very large favor and learn this mantra. 

"Ldap servers are not databases, they are directory servers". 

- The current generation of ldap servers really only works
well for data that is WORM, or "write once, read many". 

- I believe there is a standard in progress to use an XML 
formulation for reading data in/out of an ldap server. The
current standard is ldiff, the XML version of ldiff is 
called DSML. You can find out more about it at www.dsml.org.
