WL#2939: Add a storage engine to browse an LDAP directory as a table
Affects: Server-7.1 — Status: Un-Assigned — Priority: Medium
I got inspired by this while listening to a PostgreSQL presentation, where they presented "dblink-ldap" (http://pgfoundry.org/projects/dblink-ldap/) - it would be nice to have a plugin that connects to a given LDAP server and presents the directory content as tables to the MySQL server that can be queried as regular tables. [MarkM] - Perhaps taking a look at the JDBC-LDAP bridge could make a prototype for this when we have heterogeneous federation via JDBC (which is something EricH and I are working on for 5.1) - http://www.openldap.org/jdbcldap/
