  -      Talk about Alex here.
  +        Alex wrote the LDAPd pure Java LDAP server and founded the LDAPd Group.
  +        He eventually disolved the LDAPd Group and proposed and founded the 
  +        Directory Project at Apache which absorbed the code base to the LDAPd 
  +        Directory Server.

  +       
  +          As an enterprise architect and developer Alex had searched for a way 
  +          to consolidate common data within an infrastructure into one single 
  +          location to centralize it's management and allow for shared access.  
  +          Such a centralized database would make enterprise integration of 
  +          several applications and processes depending on this common 
  +          information that much easier without duplication and consistancy 
  +          issues.
  +        
  +    </p>
  +   
  +    <p>
  +      
  +          Alex first experimented with a centralized database to initially store
  +          user accounts, passwords and authorization profiles for various
  +          applications and resources within an enterprise.   Unfortuneatly the 
  +          use of an RDBMS was inhibiting.  It was a single point of failure 
  +          which wound up becoming a bottle neck.  Furthermore the RDBMS was
  +          not very conducive towards managing heirarchical data and delegating
  +          control over it.  A new storage and access paradigm was required and
  +          that's when Alex encountered the directory.
  +        
  +    </p>
  +   
  +    <p>
  +      
  +          After studying up on X.500 and LDAP Alex decided to design corporate
  +          directories to facilitate in enterprise application integration and
  +          the realization of workflows across these systems.  His experience 
  +          lead to encounters with various directory servers which disappointed
  +          him.  The directory servers encountered were a decade away from being
  +          as robust as the RDBMS is for application developement.  Some of the 
  +          rich features in the RDBMS have yet to be introduced into the world 
  +          of the directory server or require a massive workaround to implement.
  +          Things like stored procedures and triggers were most high on that 
  +          list.
  +        
  +    </p>
  +   
  +    <p>
  +      
  +          Finally on October 16th 2002 Alex decided to write his own LDAP server
  +          which had support for triggers and stored procedures.  On this day he 
  +          registered a Sourceforge project called LDAPd and began building an
  +          LDAP server.  He also founded the LDAPd Group which worked on the 
  +          LDAPd server.  Eventually others joined the project like, 
  +          Jeff Machols, Robb Penoyer, Wes McKean and others.  Before a year the
  +          server had 3 releases at sourceforge and an invitation was made by
  +          the Avalon team to have the LDAPd project move to Apache.   A proposal
  +          was written and submitted for the Apache Directory Project on 
  +          September 3rd 2003.  The proposal was accepted by the ASF into the 
  +          Apache incubator on October 30th 2003.
  +        
  +    </p>
  +   
  +    <p>
  +      
  +          Alex hopes to make the dream of a robust pure Java LDAP server a 
  +          reality before exiting the incubator.  Most importantly the server 
  +          will be free and supported by a healthy community of developers here
  +          at the ASF.
