It should be fairly straightforward to do a Java binding layer to libldap
using the native method scheme, if that's what you're interested in. Then
you could write directory-enabled applets, assuming the existence of
libldap on your hardware platform.

Beyond that, I think it'd be pretty cool to have the whole client side
implemented in Java for use with non-personal-computer hardware
platforms. Like public telephones, for instance.
