- 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.
