I need to pass parameters from Active Directory to Websphere. I was told to create an EJB from Active Directory to hold this info.
From a form based login, I need to pass information that was not entered in the login to Websphere. In the login, the only information that will be passed is Userid. I also need to include other information, ie Full Name or Phone Number.
It sounds like you'd create an EJB in Websphere that would handle the information from Active Directory, but you wouldn't create an EJB in Active Directory. Active Directory is M$'s excuse for an LDAP implementation.
So you need an EJB that works as a Facade to Active Directory?

From a fast google search, it looks like you'd use JNDI for that. Don't know enough about it to give more specific advice than to look at Sun's tutorials on the topic, though.
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
