Bigfoot.com used to have a searchable LDAP server for their free  
accounts. Alas, it appears to be no more. It's not exactly nice to  
use somebody else's machine resources for our testing purposes  
anyway, at least not without asking.

Including an LDAP server for the test would seem the better choice,  
since then the tests wouldn't rely on any resources outside of the  
machine where those tests are running. But, ApacheDS weighs in at  
5.5MB, which is a lot of footprint to add to the testing jar for a  
single test. :-)

If the DB PMC had a zone, we could set up an LDAP server there.

There are other publicly browsable LDAP servers. See http:// 
But because the data is read-only for the public, and the data in the  
directory can change, I'm not sure that it is really useful for our  

Other than that, I guess somebody could set up a public LDAP server  
for our testing needs on their own. I personally don't have the  
resources to do that.
