Using <cfldap>

The capability to query LDAP servers is useful for ColdFusion developers. Many organizations use LDAP in one fashion or another as a companywide data repository. Exchange Server and ADSI (Microsoft's Active Directory Service Interface) are two examples that provide developers an LDAP channel to this data.

ColdFusion's <cfldap> tag is the mechanism you'll use to interface this directory data. Although there are other ways to retrieve this data, such as using <cfobject> and COM, <cfldap> provides a less complicated interface to the same data.
