LEGACY. Not recommended for use. Not supported. But still works.
Limitations imposed by the use of JNDI and old code base. No longer developed.
Connector for LDAP-based directory servers. Also works for LDAP access to Active Directory. Evolution of original Sun LDAP connector. CDDL-licensed and JNDI-based.
This connector is a development dead-end. It is JNDI-based. JNDI is a very bad API for LDAP and it has severe limitations. This connector is not maintained any more. It is not supported. It is no longer actively developed. Use the new LDAP Connector instead whenever possible. See LDAP Connector Migration page for migration guidelines.
This connector originated from Sun ICF, taken over by OpenICF and then taken over by Polygon. We do not recommend use of the original or OpenICF version. The Polygon version has significant improvements over all other versions. But even the Polygon version is considered to be a legacy and it is not recommended.
