The LDAP API is described to be a lightweight directory access protocol and it is a directory service protocol that is capable to run on the layer which is above the stack of the TCP/IP. It can provide the mechanism which is used to connect as well as search and at the same time or divide the internet directories for the user and the developer. LDAP API directory service is basically based on the client model of server and the function of it is basically to enable the user to have the access to the existing directory. The data model of the LDAP API similar to that of the X. 500 OSI directory services but it provides a lower requirement for the resources. It can simplify the writing process of the internet directory services as well as the applications for the users and the developers. LDAP API is very applicable to the management of the directory as well as the browser application which does not have any services of the directory, as well as the support, being their primary function. It is neither very applicable for the process of creating the directory neither specifying as to how the services of the directory operate. The documentation of the LDAP API which is in the platform software of the development kit is needed for the experienced C as well as the programmers of C++ and finally the directory developers of the internet. It can support the programming languages of C as well as C++. It has a family relative with the services of the directory as well as the client of LDAP API that are very necessary for the process of development with the LDAP API. It has the ability to connect to the directory services of the LDAP API with the use of the easy-to-use as well as the driver that are bidirectional.
CData Drivers for LDAP Great Features:
BI & Data Visualization
The drivers in this case are capable of offering the users and the developers a very fast and easy way in which they can connect to the real-time LDAP data with the help of business intelligence, analytics, reporting tools as well as data visualization technology. They are capable of providing an unmatched query performance to the user which is also comprehensive access to the data LDAP along with the metadata and also the seamless integration with the help of the favorite analytics tools. The business intelligence reporting tools are capable of offering the user rich support for the process of interacting as well as the database of the relational. They are capable of including collectors and they are open either too slow or even too limited. The connectors are able to extend the favorite application of the user and provide live access to the data source with the help of the established standards. They are also able to deliver very comprehensive access to the data source and can also integrate with the business intelligence as well as the tools of reporting like Microsoft power and so on.
ETL & Replication
The drivers as well as the adapters are capable of extending the favorite tools of the ETL which stands for the process of extract transform and load with a connectivity of the LDAP to the tools for the replication of ETL/ELT for the users and the developers and the integration solution of it is capable of providing the users with a robust, secure as well as a reliable data movement. It can connect to the users favorite RDBMS or even the data warehouse with the LDAP to facilitate the process of operational reporting, offloading of the queries as well as increasing the performance, and at the same time supporting the governance initiatives of the data, and even archiving data for the process of disaster recovery and a lot more.
The process of data management is possible by supporting the popular database protocols just like the ADO.NET, ODBC as well as JDBS along with the wire protocol interfaces for the servers of SQL and MySQL. It is very easy for the user to connect as well as manage the data of LDAP from the huge range of database management and application options.
Workflow & Automation
It can connect to the data of LDAP from the famous migration of the data just like the tools of ESB, BPM, and the iPaaS.
