[OpenAM] OpenSSO SDK or OpenDJ querying

With the advent of Identity Repository API (AKA datastores) OpenAM 
actually became a consumer of identity information. What you're trying 
to do is identity related and there I would say you have to talk to the 
source of the identity information (here OpenDJ) directly.

Why would you go through an intermediary which abstracts form the actual 
identity information?
