CFML applications use the cfldap tag to access and manage LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) directories.
The following information teaches you to query and update an LDAP database. It is not assumed that you are familiar with LDAP, and hence an introduction to LDAP directories and the LDAP protocol is provided. However, it is assumed that you have information on the structure and attributes of your LDAP database. Hence, procedures to create an LDAP directory or manage a directory server are not provided. To learn more about LDAP and LDAP servers, see your LDAP server documentation and published books on LDAP.
The examples here use the Airius sample LDAP database that is supplied with the Netscape and iPlanet Directory Servers.
