Ersin Er is telling us about LDAP Stored Procedures and Triggers in ApacheDS, and he is also giving short demos which look quite powerful. For his demo, he is running Apache Directory Studio, an Eclipse application which I must look at a bit closer (in spite of it being in Java). That reminds me: between a couple of the beers last night, I asked Howard how much work it would be to implement triggers for OpenLDAP, as I’m dying to have that functionality. He answered that it is actually quite easy; about 200 lines of code would be sufficient to trigger the run of a Perl program as a trigger. My mouth started watering, and at least twice I insinuated that by breakfast time he could be ready. ;-) I hope he remembers… ;-)
