A Sun-supported release of an open-source, LDAP directory server is now available. It's written entirely in the Java language.
Today, Sun releases OpenDS Standard Edition (SE) 1.0 , the supported version of an open-source, LDAP directory server. The benefits are many: easy, fast installation; interactive command-line interface; high performance; interoperability. Sun senior product line manager Daniel Raskin adds that OpenDS 1.0.0 , the recently released community version, is "an embedded configuration store and user store" in OpenSSO , Sun's open Web access management project.
I also enjoyed reading yesterday's posting by OpenDS community leader , Ludo Poitou, on the accomplishments of OpenDS to date. As he points out, you can participate in the project and network with like-minded users and developers in many ways.
