Hi All,

Has anyone of you have done authentication using java and ms active directory? I'm a newbie in this area of Java and our client requires that there web application be authenticated using their ms active directory. I appreciate if you can share some code to do this.

Thanks in Advance.

AD can act as an LDAP server, and as such be accessed via JNDI.

Some links on using AD for authentication be found in this thread.

Hi Ulf,

I looked at this thread and it seems that they are discussing authentication using JAAS and AD. What I need is an LDAP way of accessing Active Directory. Do you know if there are threads that discuss LDAP authentication using AD.

I appreciate any help.

I'm not sure the code that's posted answers the OP's question. The code shows that "user" and "password" are built into the LDAP context to "bind" to the LDAP data. That's step 1. Step 2 would be to USE that context to determine if any random user/password pair in that context are valid.
