When a contact storage provider is chosen for a given context- and folder id, and multiple registered contact storages pretend to support the queried folder, the contact storage registry uses the storage with the highest priority.

In order to ensure that the ldap contact storage is used for all ldap folders it can handle, the priority parameter is used to define it's priority, which should be greater than 0 in order to substitute the default storagefor those folders.

The parameter is configured by the ldap properties file LDAPglobal[N].properties.
