  • Identity Management ReferenceLDAP is a directory server, the info are stored in an Oracle 10.1.0.4.2 database.

    When you download application server (about 2Gb), you get a fully functionnal 10.1.0.4.2 database preconfigured and an ldap server running.

    1. what is the difference between LDAP and Oracle Internet Directory?

      So, what’s the diff? You didn’t answer in your entry. All I saw was that you start up OID. Is OID the same as LDAP?

    2. check
      the FAQ

      OID is a LDAP Server. But it is part of oracle application server. And the data are stored in the database. A bit like rows in tables, but LDAP is not a relational database, it is more like a “tree”.
