Subject Re: ActiveMQ JNDI support only for testing?

Hello Huntc,

I read your blog especially the Authorisation part. I think we are talking
about the same thing. The LDAP server I set up also uses ACI to grant or
limit the access to specific topic/queue. 

I guess this discussion is mainly about whether ActiveMQ has an embedded
JNDI provider for centralized management. Because the LDAP server I have to
set up is exclusive for ActiveMQ, however, the availability of LDAP server
is separate from ActiveMQ. In other words, if LDAP says you could use this
queue, you still could not use the queue if ActiveMQ broker is down. Vice
versa, if LDAP server is down, although all the resources are available in
the JMS broker, you still could not uses any of them.
