A sample package to manipulate LDAP

I saw with great interest Francois Degrelle's post titled "Handle the LDAP with the DBMS_LDAP package" where he presents some PL/SQL package code to insert, update and check existance of users in LDAP. He also presents some sample of calling from PL/SQL and also from Java. The code is also available for download. I have not installed an tried the code but it looks OK, using the LDAP packages are not as trivial as some of the shipped Oracle packages and examples are always worth their weight in gold.
