Build an LDAPBased Address Book
Have you ever tried to share your contact list with someone who uses a different data format, or tried to migrate your address book to another application? If so, you know it can be a headache. Import and export schemes, if they exist at all, are often too clunky and unsatisfactory to use even once, much less on a regular basis. Enter the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol. This tutorial shows you how to create a LDAP-based backend to store contact information that multiple applications can share easily. There is also an overview of LDAP fundamentals and an introduction to a pre-built contact management tool that will help you get started using this open technology.
