What on earth could that recruiter mean?

Hi,

I just gotta a call from a recruiter to whom I had forwarded my CV. I am basically applying for Java/J2EE jobs. She asked whther I have worked with the two protocols - HTTP and LDAP? I said, Yes.

Since then, I am kinda wondering what on earth could that mean? Aren't these two protocols implicit when you say you have worked on Web applications. Why do you think they were mentioned seperately? Should I be knowing more about the internals of these two protocols before the interview.

Hi Sara Jahan !

First don't forget that many HR their own criterias and don't understand anything in technics, with kind of "5 or 10 years of experience in X" even if "X" doesn't exist since so long, so don't bother too much.

Then let's suppose there is a reason. All I can wonder about HTTP is the "request/response doGet()/doPost()" stuff in JSP/Servlets and implicit in J2EE. I can't figure out what more you should have to consider.

But LDAP is more useful as a hint for it is not implicit at all, you can use it for authentication and make searches using criterias. So I suggest you focus on this one by looking for some code related to Java use with LDAP (made with a JNDI lookup).

Best regards.

Hi Sania !

Not everyone has LDAP experience.

Yes, but no issue in this case as she was asked to have worked with LDAP, which can easily be simply have used it. As using LDAP server from Java code is simply making a JNDI lookup, she can easilly learn enough to perform well on user side from some relevant Java code samples.

Of course on server side managing an LDAP server is more difficult, but this side musn't be asked to the Java developper she is. So no worry. And even if she needed it some kind of OpenLDAP pre-installed on some Linux ditros will make it as well for training, but it shouldn't be necessary at all.

Best regards.
