Subject [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-517) provide an LDAPUserDatabase (part of core JSPWiki)
Date Sat, 24 Oct 2009 12:48:59 GMT


Christian Helmbold commented on JSPWIKI-517:

Better than support specific auth systems would be to support a general auth service like
the Central Authentication System (CAS). It does not only hide concrete auth services but
also supports single-sing-on with tickets. See

> 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 !
