 <p><strong>LDAP</strong> is not a new technlology. It has been around since
the 90's to mitigate complexities inherent in <strong>X.500</strong> usage. Its
name refers to <strong>L</strong>ightweight <strong>D</strong>irectory
<strong>A</strong>ccess <strong>P</strong>rotocol. Soon after the
first standard was issued, the first full <em>LDAP</em> server was created and
X.500 became obsolete.</p>
-<p>We'll use the term <strong>LDAP</strong> to represent the protocol and
<strong>LDAP</strong> server to represent the server that implements it.</p>

-<p>The <strong>LDAP</strong> protocol provides access to entries stored
in a <strong>LDAP Server's</strong> database. It provides the mechanism for fast
searching and retrieval of entries. Its data structures are hierarchical, and uses a schema
to manage the definition of a particular entry's data formats.</p>

to manage the definition of data formats allowed accross those entries.</p>
 <p>An <strong>LDAP</strong> client must first connect to a server and disconnect
when finished. Some operations may be performed on the data itself, e.g. searches, modifications
and deletions, along with a few others.</p>
-<p><strong>LDAP</strong> servers are extensible, but they all use a common
protocol which makes it easy for users to request to interact with them, in a way that isn't
tied to a particular vendor's implementation. This API is an example of what <strong>LDAP</strong>
is good at: fast data access across servers of all types.</p>

 <p><strong>LDAP</strong> servers are fast for retrievals, having been designed
specifically for this purpose. But modifications can be costly. These characteristics must
be understood when writing applications that use an <strong>LDAP</strong> server
for data storage.</p>
-<p>Each entry is associated with a location within its corresponding <strong>D</strong>irectory
<strong>I</strong>nformation <strong>T</strong>ree, and we use what
is known as a <strong>D</strong>istinguished <strong>N</strong>ame
(or <strong>Dn</strong>) to describe this address. The base entry is known as
the suffix, it along with all entries beneath it are collectively known as the <strong>DIT</strong>.</p>

 <p><strong>LDAP</strong> is a part of the <strong>IT</strong>
landscape and so it's necessary to learn how to deal with it. <strong>LDAP</strong>
servers are used to manage authentications, authorizations, demographic information about
users and more. It's very likely that you will have to write some code to access data with
<strong>LDAP</strong> at some point, and existing <strong>API</strong>s
aren't quite up to the task. This <strong>LDAP API</strong> has been designed
to simplify usage and ensure proper interaction with the server.</p>
