Goal

Steps to Create An Oracle Virtual Directory (OVD) DB Adapter That Has a LDAP Attribute Derived From Multiple Columns

As an example:

There is a DB table called USERSTABLE

This table stores data in the following columns:

identifier, name, customname, surname, email, usualname, profession

The objective is to create a database adapter which will contain at least the following attributes:

uid, givenname, orclsamaccountname, sn, mail, cn,businessCategory and description.


The attribute Description, is a derived attribute.   It will need to contain information about identifier and profession column from the DB.
For example, the syntax look like the following:

description=identifier,profession.


Observation for this example: In DB table USERSTABLE, there are 7 columns.   In the OVD DB adapter there will be 8 attributes, but one is derived from two columns.
