Yeap. So you can read http://www.jforum.net/confluence/display/sso/Home and try to implement a LDAP adapter. What do you think?

LOL

I did a quick read in your code. Interesting. The previous aproach I looked over was using the java classes from the OpenLDAP project. But the hard part for me is that I don't have access to any ldap server :?

I had a similar problem not that long ago and what I do was to install the small openldap server and create a small test instance myself. Then I got busy with another project, and had to put this topic on standby, but I managed to install the server and run it.

It might be woth trying.

No need to use external classes, java comes with everything you need.

Anyone requesting for ldap access should know how to get one running Myself, i don't know how to properly configure one, but connecting to one is very easy, and my modular implementation allows me to use any authentication method transparently.

The implementation is so easy that it's almost laughable. That's the whole basis of my thesis and it was done in like 30 minutes. I would have based my thesis on jforum, but unfortunately your database scheme is really lacking, like i explained in other posts.

Here's a quite crude example of a LDAP authentication

Enjoy!

Hi,

I already implemented the LDAP integration, based on the ideas by Francisco Javier (the fellow of some previous messages

The source is at

Any clear direction on steps involved in using this class to integrate the LDAP with JForum 2.1.4 version? I am guessing just this class won't be enough. In my installed directory, I don't see net.jforum.dao package...

If I'm not mistaken, this is for the upcoming release 2.1.5, available through CVS, so not doable with version 2.1.4.

That's right. Version 2.1.4 does not support ldap

So is there a way around that in 2.1.4? We have a LDAPAuthentication classes that abstract variety of different LDAP authentication engines (OpenLDAP, Active Directory) developed and used extensively in our other applications. It would be nice to use it if I can make it work for 2.1.4 release. Can anyone advice?

Also, when is the likely release of 2.1.5?

It is just the feature I am waiting for!

Is it worth using the lastest nightly in production for this feature?

Again, when will be 2.1.5?
