So you need to talk both directions, MyApp->IDM, and IDM->MyApp/db, like
submit some info to IDM, then get some different info (location) back
from IDM/eDir?

(a) An IDM database driver may be the method of choice, but if that's
not an option for you, and MyApp/db does not provide (b) some SOAP/REST
endpoint to submit updates, you may also (c) create a simple Java class
that can be called from a mapping activity in your IDM workflow to
read/update database information.
Or, if you've been able to call IDM WebServices from MyApp, you may (d)
use some LDAP logic, to directly access eDir from MyApp.
