It should, using ODBC. However, you need to cast your data into a structure that makes sense, according to guidelines and examples provided here <http://www.openldap.org/faq/data/cache/978.html>. Oracle is not listed as "supported" simply because nobody who's using Oracle cared to update the FAQ entry. The listed ones are those I could check with, and lots of information might be out of date as that work is now years old (given the evolution of MySQL, for example, I guess most of the encountered limitations can now be easily overcome).
