Yes it does integrate. We use VJ++ with Microsoft ADSI and LDAP enabled ADO
to talk to openldap servers. These components are not naturally thread-safe
so multi-threaded applications need special precautions.
There is a microsoft LDAP C API that works better than ADO and ADSI but is
slightly more difficult to use. It is threadsafe.
Microsoft ASP and scripting languages can talk to opeldap with no problems.
C# natively connects to openldap and is very fast.
