Chapter 15. Interfacing with LDAP-Enabled Directories

This chapter covers techniques for accessing both public and private Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) servers and provides examples of searching directories, displaying results, and adding, editing, and deleting entries. You can use Cold Fusion’s cfldap tag to access information stored in LDAP-enabled directories (including X.500 directories). LDAP is quickly becoming a standard for delivering directory-based information over the Internet. Popular uses for the cfldap tag include creating search interfaces for public and private user directories and creating administrative interfaces for managing LDAP directories.
