Hi All,

Requirement - a RDBMS static table's data need to persist in IdM/eDir.
which some time will get updated(monthly once from GUI).
Question is - mappingTable vs objectClass use. which one is
Best/suitable and how ?

Mapping Table - is an xml object in eDir. But we find difficult to
read/write data from it
objectClass - it is custom object class , we will create in eDir. i
assume easier to implemet for read/write.

1.We have static data which we are going to use in an application. The
data is currently maintained in a database table e.g. the columns of the
database are Country, state, location, and street. This table is
infrequently updated manually.
2.In our application implementation, we are going to use this data. So
we want to get this confirmed if we should maintain this data in a
mapping table or use object class (one attribute for each column).
Please guide us here.
3.In addition to this, we want to create a GUI which will allow admin to
update this static data (sporadic).

Please let us know if you need any other information in order to have a
clear idea about the issue we are having.
