I am wondering wheather using J2EE CA for Ldap connectivity to Appserver is a right thing?
As we all know,J2EE Connector Architecture talks about the *plugability* btn appservers & back end EIS like sap/peoplesoft etc....
But how about applying J2EE CA for Ldap connectivity?
Does it make sense?
Why use a connector when you already have JNDI?
I am planning to use Ldap server as a backend datastore for my tree like structure objects not as JNDI server...In this case,is it worth trying J2EE CA?
In the J2EE stack, JNDI is the primary API for accessing directory services. LDAP is a directory (well, more accurately a protocol for accessing a directory).
JNDI should be flexible enough unless you plan to use some vendor proprietary features of the LDAP server.
