Yeah. And while they are at it, does someone have a comparison between
LDAP and a filesystem...after all, they both store data. Hey, how about
LDAP and a file cabinet? or LDAP and a PDA?
LDAP is completely different from an RDBMS. It has a different purpose.
It has different ways of organizing information. It's silly to do
performance comparisons between the two. Now if you want to understand
the difference between LDAP and an RDBMS, that's a different matter....
