First, I want to agree that the API should work with the most common
LDAP servers.

I wonder if it is possible to create an automated interoperability test
suite for the LDAP API. At least for Open-Source LDAP servers (ApacheDS,
OpenDJ, OpenLDAP, 389ds) is should be easy to create Docker images.
There are Maven plugins [0] that start containers in
pre-integration-test phase and stop it in post-integration-test phase.
Runtime properties like port and credentials are then available as env

Currently I don't have time to try that out, so if anyone wants to give
it a try do so :), otherwise I might look at it later.

Kind Regards,
