Not directly. I didn’t change the transport from back-sock which is still
a local socket. You can now write a simple JSON-RPC server taking method
calls send from OpenLDAP according to the incoming native LDAP requests.
The implementation is connection-aware via cookies and multithreaded.
This allows to glue on legacy data systems easily in any language that
understands JSON-RPC. Of course you could also write a translator to
MongoDB. In the future it may be enhanced to use a real HTTPS connection.
