Re: back-sql using OCI interface

Hi Yary,

I haven't done anything with back-oci in about a year or so, but am planning
on picking up on the effort again very soon.  I need to migrate and test my
code against the latest stable OpenLDAP release.  Hopefully something will
be ready in the next month or so.  Keep in mind that this backend was
originally created as a prototype to test server performance with an Oracle
backend.  This means that there currently is not schema mapping between the
RDBMS and LDAP, and only equality searches are supported.  There is still
quite a bit of work that needs done with this, but the speed benchmarks were
very promising.  Once I upload the latest release, others are more than
welcome to help test and contribute (Tomás Arredondo has already commited to
helping out with this).  I've also emailed Dmitry to discuss the possibility
of integrating this with back-sql.
