Can we call a Java program upon an ldap trigger? If so, how can we do it? My requirement is such that when we add an entry to the ldap server, a trigger should be fired which calls a Java program.

Thanks in advance,
Visu

That would be a functionality the LDAP server needs to implement. Check the documentation of the one you're using.

Thanks Ulf,

we are using ibm tivoli directory server, and it has a post-operation plugin:

SLAPI_PLUGIN_POST_ADD_FN
A function to call after the Directory Server executes an LDAP add operation.

But can you just brief it up, how exactly are we supposed to use this plugin to call our java program. For e.g., an entry has been added. Now i want the entry to be sent to the java program.

Thanks in advance,
Visu
