I want to create a shared repository for teaching materials and projects data, should i go for RDBMS or Naming & Directory Server.

If Naming & Directory Server then which service provider i should use in JNDI, basically which naming and directory server, or can i write my own spi which just talks to my own solution to problem and gives jndi api to give access to clients.

Go with an RDBMS. Naming directories should only be restricted to truly hierarchical, usually person-centric data. It's much easier to define the right data structures for a problem in a RDBMS than a directory server.

Hi,

FYI..

May be six months before ,even we had a similiar requirements and it is something for storing project data in a shared Env. And we were talking about RDBMS and directory server. And the thing here is the users should browse these document thru a intranet web page .

So we used both (RDBMS and DS). So it is really depends upon the requirement, You can even use directory server,but the purpose of DS is lost....
