Besides LDAP, there's also SOAP / XML thingie :) All of that is pretty much trivial, and horribly overengineered (admittedly, not as horribly as X.500 or whatever that kludge was called). If a method of serializing tree-like data structures and performing request-reply protocol requires consultants to support, one may safely assume that there's something seriously wrong. To my ears "LDAP expert" sounds too much like "operator if-then-else expert". In any case, there's a bunch of public-domain thingies around which do LDAP or SOAP, so just pick any. --vadim
