I saw this evening a couple of posts by Laurent Schneider in his blog about LDAP. This is an interesting area for me as I am keen to learn more about Oracle's solution. In his first post titled "ldap server" laurent simply lets us know that he has installed his LDAP server on his laptop running SLES9. In his second post titled "ldap day 2" talks about what he can do with LDAP and what the differences are between LDAP and Oracle Internet Directory. He includes a few good links on OTN shows us how to start the admin tool. I have not seen many good papers or writings on LDAP with Oracle so i am keen to see more posts from laurent and his experiments with OID/LDAP.
