Hi,

I was able to successfully implement an SSO class for JForum, but the UID in my LDAP is rather ugly and I would like JForum to display the SN instead. Any hints as to how I could accomplish this task?

Probably the easiest way is to handle "registering" the user with jForum yourself instead of using the SSOUtils.register method. This way you can map any LDAP information you want into jForum User fields. E.g., sn to lastName, etc.

Once you've done that, you can change the templates to use whatever property you want to display instead of the user id.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
