The classic X.500 DAP development kit is ISODE, but the public version
has not been maintained for several years. It does contain ldapd
though - the original LDAP daemon which simply translates LDAP
requests into DAP requests and passes them on to the X.500 server.

These days, a good X.500 server will probably support LDAP as well as
DAP, so try that route first. If you cannot get your server to talk
LDAP directly, I suggest using LDAPD from ISODE as a gateway. I would
not try to put both LDAP and DAP client code into one application - it
would get horribly complex.
