Subject [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-517) provide an LDAPUserDatabase (part of core JSPWiki)
Date Fri, 07 Aug 2009 08:05:14 GMT


Jürgen Weber commented on JSPWIKI-517:

It would be great to have an LDAPUserDatabase in core. But it should not rely on being able
to write to LDAP, usually enterprise LDAP installations only allow writing for authorized
administrators, not for a Wiki.

> Currently there are only two choices of UserDatabase implementations in core JSPWiki:
XMLUserDatabase and JDBCUserDatabase.
> There seem to be a bunch of JSPWiki users out there using LDAP as the User Registry,
in most cases a container managed implementation, which has some limitations.
> This issue asks for an LDAPUserDatabase that extends AbstractUserDatabase and should
better integrate with JSPWiki.
> For instance, we should be able to not only read the LDAP, but also write to the LDAP.
> Like JDBCUserDatabase, LDAPUserDatabase is better suitable for larger scale implementations
where running multiple wiki's using the same LDAP user registry.
> Please add any other requirements here too !
