Connecting java to LDAP directory

Posted on 2003-10-24
Last Modified: 2008-03-03
I am working in the SAP Portal environment. I am using Eclipse to create java iViews.
I would like to know how to connect java to LDAP(a repository) and once I have the connection how would I get data out from LDAP so that I could write to a file? Would I be using SQL statements for this?
Can you please provide me some sample code or a link to documentation so I have some sort of idea about coding this.

Any help is very much appreciated!!
Thank You.

Thank you for your help but I am not using a Novell Development Kit(NDK)... I am using a Portal Development Kit(PDK), so I can not import those classes mentioned in the link you have given me for this type of connection because it is for a novell development environment.

Any further help is much appreciated!

There's an example of how to connect to LDAP (look under Getting Started -> Examples -> Directory Example).
