          To present the single virtual directory view of data in multiple and various data repositories, Oracle Virtual Directory must connect to those repositories so it can virtualize the data and route data to and from the repositories. Oracle Virtual Directory uses Adapters to connect to its underlying data repositories. Each adapter manages a namespace in the directory identified by a specific parent distinguished name (DN). There is no limit to how many adapters you can configure. You can also combine and overlap adapters to present a customized directory tree. More about Adapters at http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E23943_01/oid.1111/e10046/und_adapters.htm

          Oracle Virtual Directory provides services to clients through connections known as Listeners. Oracle Virtual Directory supports the following two types of Listeners:

          • LDAP: provides LDAPv2/v3 based services
          • HTTP: provides one or more services such as DSMLv2, or basic white page functions provided by an XSLT enabled Web Gateway

          An Oracle Virtual Directory configuration can have any number of Listeners or it can even have zero Listeners, thus restricting access to only the administrative gateway. Most Oracle Virtual Directory deployments will need no more than two HTTP Listeners and two LDAP Listeners, where one Listener is for SSL and one for non-SSL for each protocols.
