Re: Concurrency Control on LDAP?

LDAP, the protocol, allows for concurrency.  That is,
a client issue operations without waiting for previous
operations to complete and a server is free to process
these operations concurrently.

The LDAP C API supports this via what is known as the
"async" API.   The "concurrency" draft (now expired)
offered an alternative API for managing concurrent
operations.  The draft hasn't been implemented...
apparently at no great lost (developers can just use
the "async" API).
