Not an option, until name resolution starts working according to LDAP 
standard.  I am not
installing another proprietary product which requires an expensive 
database license, just to
finance the takeover of PeopleSoft. I'd rather reroute the money to 
tsunami victims instead.

4) Hack Oracle's JAR files and  use OpenLDAP for resolution. It's not 
too difficult. Maybe you can even download already hacked ones from the 
internet, but I don't know where from. The OiD pushing is a highway
robbery and I will never advise management to invest money in it.
