LDAP authentication through JSP and some basic LDAP question...
Posted on 2003-11-17
I can't seem to find a topic related to LDAP so I'm posting here since I am planning to use jsp to interact with the ldap server. My LDAP server consists of a bunch of entries of users and passwords... so for each entry it's like:
Problem #1: I added an entry like this into my database. When I did a search to output this entry, i got something like:
# neo, rcms2
Notice how the password has become encryped? How am I supposed to extract the real password through the search query without having it be encryped?
Also, how would jsp interact with my ldap server with the databse setup like the above example? Any hints or web sites or code would be nice. I tried googling but they were pretty rough and tough for me to comprehend =(. I'm pretty new at this, let alone java.
