How can I Query/Update Novell eDirectory using Oracle PL/SQL Procedure?
Posted on 2008-01-25
What is the best way to query/update Novell eDirectory using an Oracle PL/SQL procedure? I have an Oracle database with up-to-date employee status/location/contact information that I would like to synchronize with Novell eDirectory/GroupWise. I'm looking for an automated data push from Oracle to eDir. The Oracle database is running on an Intel/RedHat box and the eDirectory is running on a Novell server. I have full admin access to the database, but I don't have physical access to the eDirectory server. Just the ability to query/update via LDAP.
We don't use OID, so I'm thinking the best way would be to write an Oracle procedure to query/update Novell eDirectory using LDAP services. What about Novell IDM / DirXML or DBMS_LDAP?
Is this the best way to go? Any suggestions or site/software/reading recommendations?
Thanks and take care,
