I am using Database realms for defining roles and maintaining users . I would want to move this to LDAP and maintain the roles in the groups.
The queries in the view screens change based on the user logged on and his priveleges.
Can I get some info or examples how to start designing the LDAP and start using the security features of LDAP.
By the way I am using JSP and STRUTS for our application with the DB being Oracle.

If you are using JAAS and Weblogic:
1. Design tree in LDAP
2. Load the user info
3. Use LDAP As authentication provider.
I agree. Here's the link:
