No you can not connect a non Cisco AP to a controller or WCS. The AP needs to speak LWAPP, which is for now a proprietary protocol. A new protocol, CAPWAP, is being developed and may allow this in the future.
To learn about controllers, I suggest reading the WLC configuration guide, accessible from Cisco Web site with your CCO account. We can also help you here if you have any specific question.
I appreciate your prompt reply. After going thorugh some stuff at Cisco Website what I understand is that WLAN Controller is a physical hardware device while WCS is software that you can run on a Server based machine(Correct me if I am wrong).
In addition to that I need to know that in order to configure a LWAP you must have a WLAN controller.But is it mandatory to have WCS for the working to WLAN Controller.
You are perfectly right. A controller is a piece of hardware where the configuration of the APs is centralized. So you need a controller is you have LWAPP based APs. There are different controller models, depending on the number of access points you want to control.
WCS is software, and provides several different features, such as single point of management if you have several controller, graphical representation of your heatmaps, planning and so on.
WCS is not mandatory with LWAPP APs, it just adds extra functionalities.
