LDAP Programming with Java book. Rob Weltman, Tony Dahbura. LDAP Programming with Java.

In this book, the creators of the Directory SDK for Java show how it can be used to build powerful, standards-based directory applications that leverage LDAP directory information on intranets, the Internet, even in E-commerce applications. Start by reviewing what Directories are, what directory-enabled applications can accomplish, and the key elements of the LDAP directory standard. Next, establish a directory application development environment; learn how the Directory SDK for Java can be used to build LDAP-enabled applications; and walk through retrieving, creating, maintaining, and securing directory information. Along the way, developers will learn how to build LDAP-aware applets; script LDAP with JavaScript and Java; use LDAP on a Web server; create reusable LDAP JavaBeans; optimize the performance of their LDAP-enabled applications; and much more. For all intermediate to advanced Java and network programmers, system, network, and messaging administrators.

This book is written in clear and easy to understand format,a lot of examples and tips. By the time you're done reading the book you will have a very clear idea of how you're going to tackle that LDAP, in Java.

This book is about LDAP programming, specifically using Netscape Directory SDK for Java. This book is not about the Directory SDK for C, and it is not about JNDI. [Since JNDI is a generic interface for a variety of naming and directory services, and not limited to LDAP, a book about programming for JNDI would therefore imply covering more than just LDAP, so you can kind of tell this book is not about JNDI from the title.] Anyway, if you are interested in programming in Java using the Directory SDK, get this book.
The authors describe (with code and examples) how to access LDAP from an applet, from javascript, from a bean, and from a servlet. They also spend an entire chapter on modelling relationships for LDAP, which is an extremely important topic that is glossed over in many texts. Even if you are not going to build an LDAP app that will model an organizational structure like the one described, the concepts in this chapter are very useful for thinking about how to set up a directory efficiently so that it will adapt to changes over time.
This book is the first one I would buy to quickly come up to speed on LDAP programming in Java for the Directory SDK - it has a variety of examples on a range of topics, and does not skimp on the important details.

This book is the only book available that really gets into the nuts-and-bolts of developing LDAPv3 applications in any language, not just Java.
Its use of the Netscape Java LDAP SDK is a real plus since that SDK is up-to-date with the current IETF Draft Java APIs that are currently being progressed to RFCs.
It gives excellent treatment of using LDAP directories to build directory-enabled applications, including using SASL and SSL for authentication (although it doesn't address 'start TLS'), using JavaBeans to encapsulate LDAP, storing user preferences in a directory, and managing LDAP schemas.
The lack of treatment of JNDI is really not missed since the book is about LDAP applications not the more limited view of LDAP directories presented by the generic 'naming context' abstractions of JNDI.

This book is a truly excellent book, and the only poor reviews center around it's lack of JNDI coverage, which I find unfortunate. Nowhere does the book infer that it is going to cover jndi, this is the assumption of a buyer who equates the word "java" in the title with jndi. Most people who use jndi (myself included) do so to access an ldap server, so to learn jndi is a bit of an overkill. What most people don't know is that netscape's directory SDK for java will port to any ldap version 3 compliant server (and most version 2's), so although it isn't standardized like jndi, it is portable. p38 "The LDAP SDK provides communications and data handling to any LDAP compliant directory service" p51 "Other LDAP servers that comply with LDAP version 3 will also work with the code and examples in this book, and much of the code will also work with servers that support only LDAP version 2". You'll never find a clearer book on ldap, so don't let the jndi confusion throw you.

I have read a lot about LDAP over the past month during my research on an enterprise-scale authentication solution. I was sure that LDAP was part of the solution. Unfortunately, all the material seemed to be in two veins:
1. API Documentation (which assumed I already had the basic structure designed)
2. Generalities about LDAP and directories (which gave me no strategic insight on how to actually solve a design problem)
This book is different. It actually leads you through a process that will make you able to design solutions with LDAP. To my knowledge, there is no other book that does so.
Yes, it is true that it was rather self-serving to base the book on Netscape's API for LDAP (read 'please buy my company's directory'). I'm not sure why I would recommend a technology because it it standards-based, and then use a proprietary API! However, the examples are still useful, even if you end up actually coding in JNDI (which is obviously what we should do).
This book is practical without techie-nerd rambling. I opened the book to a random page, and the heading says "I Want Only One Record and I have the DN". This is typical. Much of the book is in the form of "Problem => Solution". What more can I say?
OK, guys, very well done, but you don't get that last star because you didn't see fit to use the standard API. A follow-up book, perhaps? A *THIN* book on JDNI, maybe? Yes, as a published author, I know how publishers *HATE* thin books (as if they were sold by the pound). You can do it, though. The success of this book should give you the clout.

I was looking for a book to help me with my website's authentication project and its use of LDAP and this book helped me more than the rest. It gave me great code examples, great insights on directory design and an excellent understanding of how to get my job done.
I was at first a little concerned about the lack of coverage on JNDI, but then I realized it's not important to most LDAP/Java projects and it's also widely covered elsewhere. These guys zero in and missle lock on LDAP and Java and really help the reader with those 2 technologies.
I really hope to they put out more texts like this soon on other technologies and information technology strategies. I would guess that other aspects of web applications and web architectures would be well covered by these authors and applicable to me and my highly trafficed website.
