Hi all. Can I access the active directory in WinXP using Java ? yes I know that I should use JNDI, but as I know, to use JNDI , I should use an application server , right ? so can I use the active directory using JNDI alone ?? if no, can you tell me how to use J2EE RI to perform this functionality ? (I mean, if you can give me a url from java site, because I don't find it).
