I'm doing search within a proyect in order to define and develop access to a LDAP database. Did'nt know much about LDAP up to last friday :)

I'm impressed, however, on how easy to install OpenLDAP is vs. other commercial directories (Netscape's Directory Server) on Linux. The later seems to have an installer compiled against *old* libraries and I can only get it to "core dump", the former is installed nicely using debconf :)

Also, there are a number of useful open source proyects:

  • Of course openLDAP.
  • gq: VERY nice gtk LDAP client (tried it against OpenLDAP, Netscape's Directory Server and Sun's)
  • Frood a Gtk+Perl interace using Mozilla's Libperl
  • libnet-ldap-perl easy to use Perl Modules, not be confused with
  • Mozilla::LDAP which is another implementation using Netscape's C SDK.

Well... back to coding in Perl to test LDAP features...
