The Apache Directory™ Project

Project Vision

We strive to increase LDAP awareness, comfort and adoption to bring forth what we call the Modern LDAP Renaissance. Learn more about our vision here.

Directory Sub-Projects

The Apache Directory Project provides directory solutions entirely written in Java. These include a directory server, which has been certified as LDAP v3 compliant by the Open Group (ApacheDS), and Eclipse-based directory tools (Apache Directory Studio).


ApacheDS™
 
ApacheDS is an extensible and embeddable directory server entirely written in Java, which has been certified LDAPv3 compatible by the Open Group. Besides LDAP it supports Kerberos 5 and the Change Password Protocol. It has been designed to introduce triggers, stored procedures, queues and views to the world of LDAP which has lacked these rich constructs.

Apache Directory Studio™
 
Apache Directory Studio is a complete directory tooling platform intended to be used with any LDAP server however it is particularly designed for use with ApacheDS. It is an Eclipse RCP application, composed of several Eclipse (OSGi) plugins, that can be easily upgraded with additional ones. These plugins can even run within Eclipse itself.

The Apache Directory Team is proud to announce the availability of the 1.0.0-M12 version of the Apache Directory LDAP API.

The Apache Directory LDAP client API is an ongoing effort to provide an enhanced LDAP API, as a replacement for JNDI and the existing LDAP API (jLdap and Mozilla LDAP API).

This is a schema aware API, with some convenient ways to access a LDAP server. This API is not only targeting the Apache Directory Server, but should work pristine with any LDAP server.

It's also an extensible API : new Controls, schema elements and network layer could be added or used in the near future. It's also OSGi capable.

In this milestone, we have fixed some issues, some of them being critical:

Here is the release note for Apache Directory LDAP API 1.0.0-M12:

Bugs :

  • DIRAPI-82 Loading class file as stream under Windows bugged
  • DIRAPI-83 - Debug logging causes never ending loop when decoding messages
  • DIRAPI-84 - API fails to preserve the UP name of the attribute in a normalized DN
  • DIRSHARED-53 - Review RequestID processing
  • DIRSHARED-134 - Missing artifact org.apache.directory.jdbm:apacheds-jdbm2:bundle:2.0.0-M1 when depending on apacheds-server-jndi

Improvement :

  • DIRSHARED-128 - Update the samba schema with samba version 3 elements

Feel free to experiment, we highly appreciate your feedback !
