It would be on the Novell developer wiki site.

Here's a link to the site: http://developer.novell.com/wiki/index.php/Developer_Home

Here's a link to where you can find Java-related tools for working with eDirectory via LDAP, JNDI, JDBC, etc.: http://developer.novell.com/wiki/index.php/Develop_to_eDirectory#Develop_LDAP_applications_to_access_eDirectory

Here's some links to sample code-

Sample code for LDAP classes for Java: http://developer.novell.com/documentation/samplecode/jldap_sample/index.htm

Sample code for JNDI: http://developer.novell.com/documentation/samplecode/extjndi_sample/index.htm

Sample code for JDBC: http://developer.novell.com/documentation/samplecode/ldapjdbc_sample/index.htm

No such thing as "Novell LDAP".

"Novell" is a company. It makes a number of products, including "Identity Manager", "Open Enterprise Server" and "eDirectory".

I'm assuming you want to authenticate against an LDAP interface to eDirectory. ShineOn links are a good stary. Novell's LDAP interfaces are compliant with LDAP v3. Remember that unlike AD, eDirectory is an actual 3-D hierarchical environment.

True.

LDAP is an IETF standard access protocol for directory services, originally devised for the x.500 specification that never really took hold as intended - an internet-wide "white pages" with everyone and everything all neatly cataloged and addressable by way of a simple LDAP lookup...

The Open Group has certified eDirectory to the LDAPv3 specification, and eDirectory is widely regarded as the best enterprise-class LDAP compatible directory service, as reported by Gartner.

So, technically, you want to write Java code to *use* LDAP to access eDirectory.
