I am trying to work through Sun's JNDI tutorial, get it here.
They want a person to download an LDAP server, the one they are recommending is openldap.open LDAP.
My problem is that open LDAP appears to be a c or C++ application from a unix platform. And, I'm training on a Windows platform
Do I have that correct?
Does Sun One come with an LDAP server?
Can I down load a trail version?
Does anyone have the product home page URL?
Is this going to be such a hassle getting Sun One going that I should quit now?

I haven't done the JNDI tutorial, so I can't really give you any feedback on whether it is worth the effort. And the LDAP server is part of the tutorial whether you use Sun ONE's application server or not, so the question of whether getting Sun ONE going is probably irrelevant. LDAP wouldn't be a bad thing to have a working knowledge of anyway, it's getting to be a pretty ubiquitous technology.
Here are some answers to your questions, though:
OpenLDAP has been compiled on Windows. information here, precompiled binaries here.
Sun ONE does have a commercial LDAP server. In fact, it is a very common (70%+ market share) commercial implementation. Evaluation download here.

Thanks so much, you've been a big help.
I surfed your book on Amazon. It looks interesting and up to date ( 1.4 JDK ). I have often been pleased with Wiley publications.

Just so that you aren't disappointed ...
I cover iAS 6.x in my book. And iAS 6.x uses either JDK 1.2 (6.0.x) or JDK 1.3 (6.5.x). I do mention JDK 1.4 a couple of times. Essentially to give the reader a heads up about maintaining future compatability (specifically about JDK 1.4 logging and assertions). But I don't go into too much detail because 1.4 isn't an available option for iAS 6.x.
