Subject [PATCH] LDAP support for apr-util
Date Mon, 30 Jul 2001 22:23:00 GMT
Hi all,

This is the initial landing of the LDAP support for apr-util.

It has the following purposes:

- Do the job of finding and linking to a suitable LDAP library
- Add an LDAP search and compare cache for extra performance
- Provide an LDAP connection cache so that LDAP connections can be
reused
- Other good things

The code is based on a port of an auth_ldap module by Dave Carrigan
released under the Apache licence.

The purpose of posting this code here is to get feedback from people on
what else needs to be done to this code before it could be accepted for
inclusion into APR-util.

Stuff that should work:

- If the --with-ldap flag is not specified on the ./configure line, the
LDAP components should not be built, and no errors should crop up. This
part of the library defaults to disabled.   

- If the --with-ldap flag is specified, it should successfully find and
link to the OpenLDAP libraries (v1.2.x and v2.0.x), or the Netscape LDAP
libraries, or the new iPlanet LDAP libraries (untested).

If there is anything within the code that is either broken, or
implemented incorrectly, please let me know so this can be fixed.

The include file apr_ldap.h.in goes in the include/ directory. The rest
of the files go
in a new directory called ldap/

Regards,
Graham
