I have a client requirement to search for users that are newly created or updations done to the existing ones. I assume last modified property of the users will fetch both the categories.
LDAP : Active directory
I want to use java to fetch these details . Is there any good approach to this? Are their any attributes in AD that define the last modified user and how that information can be useful to my requirement?
There are plenty of tutorials on the web showing you how to use LDAP with Java. Here's one to start you off.
If you want to know what attributes are available on an LDAP server, an LDAP browser (such as Softerra's which is free) will come in useful. There's probably also lots of documentation on the Microsoft website for AD specific attributes.
