i m making on a chat application and it requires a ldap to be used as the directory service. I dont know as to how i would integrate the ldap to my server.
It goes like this when the user logs in his information must be transferred from the server or relative database to the ldap and ldap sould maintain the session of the current user.
Can it be possible and if so then how come??
if i m having n open ldap 2.2.23 srver how to onfigure it to make it work or run.
IS it possible to do so?
or it is necessary to get the user's authentication done using ldap.
or we should be storing the info abt the user into the ldap as well as
rel db.or ldap only.
what acc to u is good and fast to do
As far as the messege transfer is concerned we are using servlets as the middleman
So how this communication from the ldap and rel db take place in the first place
Actually i dint get the point. The ldap would be having the data about the usernames from the beginning only and when the user logs in (authentication done against the entry within the database) and then the name would be checked in for the ldap and logged in message would appear?? is it so?
So why we need the data within ldap Cant it be possible that the data is just transfered when the user is authenticated using the database
As far the storage is concerned if ldap holds all the data then would it be possible for the ldap to hold more than 200 entries *what would be the extreme limit??) if tbere is any?
And as u told to use the JSP. We had used JSP in the earlier projets of ours and so we wanned to use Swing would swing make appl slow or wat??
And is servlet a better option to use for transfer of the messages ?
Once again how the process to transfer the names from the database to ldap will take place
