i am new to LDAP. And we are using openLDAP. I have never written any code to access data from LDAP.
Neither am i sure whether i must use JNDI or JLDAP(from Novell) to pick data from openLDAP.
I have to write a LDAP Query Engine. The functionality is simple. Display onw a web page a set of attributes (available in LDAP) for the user to choose from. Based on attributes the user selected i generate a Query to fetch data for those attributes from LDAP and display them to the user in the form of a report.
I am not sure how to do this. Can anyone give me example code or suggest how to go about doing this.
I only know what entries(objects) and their attributes are present in LDAP.
I am sure in many cases the user choice of attributes too would be invalid i.e it would not make sense to generate query for attributes from two totally unrelated objects etc...
