Dear All,
How can I access the active directory of windows to authenticate the registered users with my application ?
is there any good tutorials or any good resources regarding this topic ?
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks,
Murali

I can think of few things I've done in the past years that were more rife with gotchya's than trying to authenticate against active directory. You can do it with Java's JNDI, but you need an administrator's account to authenticate your application with FIRST, then you can authenticate users. It's a pain. Searching the net I found someone had wrapped the Win32 api for authentication with a JNI wrapper and that worked much better. Try searching for it.

I dont think this is a JDBC question.

Probably not, but I need to find out where to move it. It has more to do with the javax.naming API than java.sql.
I will find out and then move it accordingly.

Ok, for now this is going in Other Java API's. So I am moving it there.
