A directory administrator in a French university asked me how to access 
an LDAP directory with a browser considering that he already has a 
corresponding XML file 

XForms is interesting for that but it appears that this XML file is not 
so small (700 ko) to be used as an instance and, instead of splitting 
this file into multiple ones according to first letters of person names, 
I was thinking about a direct interface using the DSML protocol.

I know that XForms developers and designers are more concerned by XML 
databases or relational databases but LDAP directories are very 
widespread and, even if a DSML extension is not frequently used, it 
is available.

This sounds like a case study. Has anybody already done this before ?

Thank you for your answers.
