Hi Alex and others,


I propose to use this wiki page for specifying the features needed in the LDAP JDO/JPA.



To give you and others an idea how we map LDAP to Java Classes.



Since this is an initial work, the current features are open for changes. the source repository for the implementation:

Thanks Kiran for the heads up.  Yes I am very interested in what you're trying to achieve.  More inline ...

We, JPOX a data access project, are working on an interface for LDAP via JDO

Usage e.g. SELECT FROM Person where firstName == 'Ana'

Sounds like you're trying to wrap the LDAP access model around the relational access model.  There will be some pitfalls here and I wish I knew enough to navigate them along with JDO APIs.  I guess we can perhaps have some discussion around this.

Person.class is linked to "ou=Users,dc=example,dc=com" while attributes
mapped to fields.

We currently support 1-1 and 1-N relationships and will soon have a first

We currently use Apache Directory for running our tests. If you see any
opportunity for collaboration between our projects please let us know.

Yes we should collaborate.  I am very interested.
