Integration with a large LDAP directorry

Hello,

I am currently implementing a Proof of Concept of an application integrating Activiti in a huge organization. Of course, LDAP integration is needed. I am aware that this topic has been discussed like thousand times on this forum and, in particular, I am aware of this link  :

http://developer4life.blogspot.com/2012/02/activiti-authentication-and-identity.html

The problem is that all the integration samples I have seen  between Activiti and LDAP involve at some point loading to memory the complete list of users and groups from the LDAP. From the above :

//TODO: get all users from your identity domain and convert them to List<User>

This does not seem wise to me for a LDAP with 80000+ entries. Has anybody any insight on integrating the Activiti Engine with a large LDAP repository ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Luke
