Short answer : no. But Ldap transaction is totally a different thing 
than RDBMS transactions. There is currently nothing really specified 
regarding LDAP transaction, if you except this draft :

(which has been issued 4 months ago !)

However, we have implemented recently a rollback facility which could be 
used to implement a transactionnal subsystem, assuming we add some 
locking mechanism.

Apache Directory Studio is a standalone editor. It's based on Eclipse 
RCP, which does not mean you _have_ to launch eclipse to run the tool. 
It comes in two forms :
- a standalone application
- a set of Eclipse plugins.

It's up to you to use one or the other.
