I would definitely like to see a simple file-space approach to begin with and then would investigate
the need for LDAP binding.  For that, I would start by using a CLI approach to LDAP searching
and binding and use that as the performance test case against JNDI.

Here are some references:
http://www.openldap.org/
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2251.txt
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2829.txt
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2253.txt
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1779.txt
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2247.txt
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1777.txt (v2)

I will think about contributing but I need to shut down now for a move to a new building.
 I am happy to provide any advice I can, though, regardless.

Robin.

Would you like to contribute or point me to a library that makes this
easier?  There's probably code in JAAS I can use, too, even if I'm not
using the whole library.  Anyhow, the simple file-based backend will
come first and perhaps that's all we need.
