RE: LDIF mapper

Excellent suggestion! I was looking at a full blown java implementation, my
reason being I will need continual update notification. Basically if there
is a new user added to the DB (only oracle for now AD and SQL later) I need
the system to be notified and updated real time. I was thinking along the
lines of asynch MOM updates using listeners and JMS would be good for this.
I will check out perl-Net-LDAP anyway as then the mapping portion of the
tool may not be necessary.

Thanks again

Why not a perl script to get the info from the db, and use perl-Net-LDAP
to convert, ldapadd for the rest.

Should be pretty easy.
