Subject: The Apache Directory Project Exits Incubator

The Apache Directory team proudly annouces the Apache Directory
project graduated incubation under the Apache Software Fouindation
(ASF) according to the ASF Board Summary for February 23, 2005.

Our primary vision is to build an enterprise directory server platform
and its components where other Internet services snap in to store
their data within the directory so they may be managed using LDAP.
Those services include LDAP itself, DNS, DHCP, SLP, UDDI, NTP, and
most importantly Kerberos, which can integrate with the services to
provide full-featured network authentication service.

Features of ApacheDS:

* Designed as an LDAP and X.500 experimentation platform.
* The server exposes all aspects of administration via a special system backend.
* Both the backend subsystem and the frontend are separable and
independently embeddable.
* Provides a server side JNDI LDAP provider which directly interacts
with the backend storage.
* Powered by Staged Event Driven Architecture (SEDA) which can handle
large amounts of concurrency.

Coming soon:
* Remote management via JMX.
* Java-based triggers and stored procedures.

The Apache Directory team is looking for developers and users to work
with the server and give feedback.  Mailing list information is at:

Check the Apache Directory project at:

The Apache Software Foundation provides organizational, legal, and
financial support for a broad range of open source software projects.
The Foundation provides an established framework for intellectual
property and financial contributions that simultaneously limits
contributors potential legal exposure. Through a collaborative and
meritocratic development process, Apache projects deliver
enterprise-grade, freely available software products that attract
large communities of users.
