I guess I'm asking how ldappc knows that a change has occurred in Grouper or

Ldappc essentially computes a logical diff between the groups, memberships, and permissions selected from the grouper and signet databases and those that are in the configured schema and DIT areas in the target directory. It makes no change whatsoever to the grouper or signet databases.

2) Are there any plans for a JDBC source connector configuration in this? We
don't generally use JNDI for our sources. We *can*, but I'm not sure why
we'd want to.

No. We focused specifically on ldap since that covers the largest number of potential deployments.

The ldappc code might give you a leg up, though, on building a provisioning connector for some other target technology. It's architected with pieces that face grouper & signet and separate pieces that face the target. You might be able to reuse the former and the overall application architecture.
