ADSI is a set of COM objects that are used to programmatically manipulate a namespace. A namespace could be anything from the Active Directory to an application such as MS Exchange Server.
Since ADSI is based on COM, it may be scripted using any language with COM bindings (any language that supports accessing the COM subsystem). This means that you may access ADSI with C\C++, Visual Basic, Java, Perl or many other languages. You could even embed ADSI scripts into an MS Office macro using VBA as part of a workflow process. The possibilities are almost limitless.
