  Demystifying LDAP
Subject:   Ldap or Database (users, roles, etc)

I'm not convinced it is cleaner or easier to implement an ldap server as opposed to a mysql server running with users, roles, etc.


If the user provisioning service that is implemented in mysql is well documented, I don't see the advantage ldap has over the database.


I also think ldap is much more difficult for programmers than giving them and api and a model of the users and roles.
