The virtual data transformation feature enables you to map attribute names and values to suit LDAP client applications and multiple disparate data sources. For example, an attribute used by a client application can be mapped to any attribute name in an LDAP directory, LDIF file, or RDBMS database. This feature includes the dynamic creation, deletion, and renaming of virtual attributes, and of attribute values. Multivalued attributes are supported. A facility for defining default attribute values is also provided.
