I am about to get my feet wet with LDAP coding in Java.

Has anyone used the Directory Server SDK by Netscape for LDAP. It lloks like a good tool. My fear is that it has not been updated in what looks like a long while.

Otherwise using JNDI and java if one wants to do all the same things without using the SDK is that possible?

Yes, JNDI package of java provides all the required apis to browse, save, authenticate, query ldap. Quite comprehensive and generic.

Also, there's an open source helper framework, LdapTemplate that encapsulates the details of Java JNDI/LDAP and lets you focus on the important stuff.
