Subject LDAP API 1.0 status
Date Mon, 23 Jan 2017 09:23:35 GMT
Hi guys,


a quick update on what's going on:  there is not much change in the
current code, beside a few modifications done in the Ldap


- Relaxed the Filter parser to allow spaces to be present when it's not
ambiguous (like '(  &  (...' is now accepted)

- The PersistentSearch codec was buggy

- Added a isSecured() metod in the LdapNetworkConnection class

- Made it so every operation connect to the ldap server if it's not
already connected. This is important for people wanting to apply an
operation over an anonymous connection

- Fixed the TrustmanagerFactory

- Added a LdapNetworkConnection that takes a TrustManager as a
parameter, to allow users to create a SSL connection immediately

- Made ApacheDS working with the API (it was broken for quite some time)


Some effort has been put on teh API documentation - thanks to Shawn for
the proof reading - but there is stilla  lot to do. I'm currently
working on the Security pages
(http://directory.staging.apache.org/api/user-guide/5-ldap-security.html
and the associated pages). My current focus is on SASL, the SSL and
StartTLS pages are complete - well, unless we have something to add ;-)...


Feel free to review them !


TODO before 1.0 :

We need to improve the Trustmanagerfactory to check the server's
certificate by default, currently we don't check anything, this is not
good. Stefan already mailed about the issue.


Many thanks !
