You can browse your LDAP with this program from http://www-unix.mcs.anl.gov/~gawor/ldap/. As a developer, you are not supposed to edit the schemas, I guess. Ask your sys admin. You just need to figure out how to configure LDAP login module on the app server. If your server supports JAAS, it must have a login config file. JBoss, for example, has login-config.xml under config directory, which can define all the login modules including file, database, or LDAP-based login.
