Ok, I'll go for the 0.9.3 snapshot.

http://cvs.apache.org/repository/directory/jars/ apacheds-main-0.9.3-SNAPSHOT.jar

When I launched the directory server it just had a minor complaint about the logging system:

D:\programfiles\apache\apacheds-0.9.2>java -jar apacheds-main-0.9.3-SNAPSHOT.jar server3.xml
log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (org.apache.ldap.server.ServerMain).
log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.

Then nothing more.

When I tried to connect to the server it could not (I'm using LDAP Browser/editor v2.8.2).

I checked that the property "ldapPort" on the org.apache.ldap.server.configuration.MutableServerStartupConfiguration was correct with what my client used.

The 0.9.0 release printed a short message that the server was successfully started when it was done. Is that still expected from the 0.9.3 release?

As I have written, the current version of the file (i.e. the version which belongs to the last revision within subversion) does not work with

0.9.2 (and below) because it already references to components which have been implemented in order to meet the requirements in 0.9.3. This is probably the cause for your missing classes.

In my test environment, the file in svn revision 240160, checked out by


worked well with the 0.9.2 release. The server started without any problem and I was able to connect with an arbitrary LDAP client.

I would highly recommend to use a newer version, because we have fixed several major bugs since 0.9. Just give it a try -- you'll get any help you need to get it up and running (the developers here on the list are very helpful). It is also possible to use the current 0.9.3 snapshot, which is available here

User feedback is always appreciated. Especially from beginners, because we obviously have to improve end user experience. But I am probably not wrong when I assume that you are a skilled person. Why else should you want to run an LDAP server ;-)
