Yes, I know. The configuration file must be modified and rewritten for OpenLDAP. However, nothing like that has to be done wit AD. The idea behind not supporting OpenLDAP was to promote their own SSO product, OID.  However, OID fell flat, AD is the king of the market. It seems that somebody at Oracle has miscalculated. And what is equally infuriating, they still don't want to recognize the mistake and support OpenLDAP.
