It works through sql backend - that is subsystem that serves ldap operations (passed to
it by daemon's frontend that talks LDAP to clients) using RDBMS. See documentation on

Of course, yes. Different backends have nothing to do with client interaction through
LDAP protocol - the (single) frontend does this job.
Different backends just muck with data as requested by frontend, so clients don't know
were the tree is stored really - BerkleyDB, RDBMS or plain text files.

ODBC. OpenLDAP is written in C, not Java.

Please read the documentation available on site (guides, FAQs, list archives)
