If you do make this happen with Spring beans, I'd leave if you share your results. I could certainly benefit from that as I'm sure could others.

Subject: Pooling of multiple LDAP DataConnectors

I've missed out on LDAP pooling for attribute resolution so far and I'm know looking at it in more details. I couldn't figure this from the documentation [1,2]:
Can connection pools be shared between LDAP multiple DataConnectors (using the same LDAP URL, of course)?

Our edu-ID IdP has many LDAP connectors with varying base DNs, filters, search scopes or returned attributes, however they all connect to the LDAP server in the same way (same URL, principal, credential, TLS). It would make sense to share one connection pool among those connectors. Is this implied or possible with the DataConnector configuration syntax or shall I go full-on Spring beans to achieve that?
