ApacheDS now has LDAP stored procedures and triggers. The world of Relational Databases has enjoyed the benefits of stored procedures and triggers for many years now. These tools of the integration layer make the relational database very appealing to developers for many reasons. Code can be located close to data for mass manipulation. Referential integrity can be managed using triggers. The introduction of these constructs within an LDAP Directory makes LDAP more appealing. Further more it will lead to the development of new applications using LDAP. This lecture discusses these constructs with respect to LDAP, their implementation within ApacheDS, and how they can be used to build new LDAP backed applications.
