Here's a nice new addition to the Free Tools. This driver is based on the example coming with JDBC 1.6 driver for Oracle, which uses some Oracle side tables(EMP, EVENTLOG, etc). It works with DirXML 2.0. Some minor modifications would allow it to run on DirXML 1.1a, since no DirXML 2.0 specific features are leveraged.

The goal behind this driver is to provide a way to assign a period of validity for a Group Membership for a given user, something that is not supported out of the box by eDirectory. In the example an Oracle application is used because it provides some self-polling for the validity interval. You could also use Microsoft SQL Server or DB2, or another database.
