Hi I'm working on a LDAP based authentication module for my web application using JAAS. Had a question on LDAP.. as a developer do i need to create a schema or something or how does it work.. my company has a ldap server set up but i'm not sure exactly how to go about using it for testing my applciation.. any helpful tutorial/resources or brief explanation would make my life easy

You can browse your LDAP with this program from http://www-unix.mcs.anl.gov/~gawor/ldap/. As a developer, you are not supposed to edit the schemas, I guess. Ask your sys admin. You just need to figure out how to configure LDAP login module on the app server. If your server supports JAAS, it must have a login config file. JBoss, for example, has login-config.xml under config directory, which can define all the login modules including file, database, or LDAP-based login.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
