The JDBC-LDAP Bridge, first created by Octet String and now owned by Oracle, provides this interface directory servers and servers. There are two main components to the JDBC-LDAP Bridge:
While the JDBC LDAP tools are owned by Oracle and maintained at OpenLDAP.org MyVirtualDirectory provides support for JDBC connections inside of inserts in order to make it easier to develop inserts. Enclosed is documentation for both using the bridge and the browser.
