Mladen, I usually like your posts, but OID for Directory Naming
is free.

Quote from the Licensing Information:
A restricted-use license for Oracle Internet Directory (OID),
a component of Oracle Identity Management, is included with
all editions if users use the Directory Naming feature to
configure Oracle Net Services. OID may not be used or deployed
for other uses. Please contact your Oracle sales representative
for additional information on Oracle Identity Management.

It it on my to do list to ask my wife to setup a Microsoft
Active Directory and let me test it for Directory Naming. I
don't know whether it is open enough, but AD can be found
in many companies.
