  • Why is Spring LDAP not on GitHub and is the project active?

    Hi guys,

    just want to ask: What is the status of Spring LDAP project?
    • It seems that it is the only top level Spring project that has not been migrated to GitHub.
    • Not much has been done on the source (apart from some minor changes to the logging levels).

    I know that LDAP is still the same so there is no necessity for excessive activity. But still, I feel that there is close to zero attention given to the project (I am assuming by JIRA activity and the GitHub migration).

    Thank you for any information on this.

    I'm asking myself exactly the same question. Moreover, the Spring LDAP project is not listed on this welcome page of the Spring project : http://www.springsource.org/projects.

    If it's discontinued, it's really a pain because a such convenient LDAP library is a must have when you have to interact with a LDAP. Natural Java implementation (the JDK one) sucks, and there aren't really a lot of alternatives. Most of all, Object Directory Mapping “ la” JPA is really nice.

      the project is listed in the welcome page under More Spring Projects, but still looks not maintained and I wonder if I should use it or just go with plain jndi.
      browsing the forum posts i don't see active developers answering questions.

        The fact is that Spring LDAP is a breeze while plain JNDI is a pain… Will try to see if I can contact somebody to get information on that through some other way than the forum.

          I see spring-ldap on GitHub and issues from Jira are getting fixed... looking forward for next release! Thank you Spring/Mattias for continuing this great project!

            The project has recently been revived and a 1.3.2 release containing the most important bug fixes will be available very shortly.

            After this release the plan is to start working on a 2.0 version.

              That's really good news, thanks a lot. Do you have any roadmap explaining what the 2.0 will contain?

                In case you missed it, the 1.3.2.RELEASE has been out for a week now.

                The 2.0 version will mainly be a modernization of the API (i.e. generics and stuff). The currently planned and implemented issues for 2.0 can be found here: https://jira.springsource.org/issues...t%20%3D%20LDAP

                Please note that some of these issues may be excluded as it's uncertain if they are actual problems or not.

                If you have specific requests that you would like to see in the project, feel free to file Jira issues. (https://jira.springsource.org/browse/LDAP). If you have major suggestions this would be a very good time, since we are now in the position to make (reasonable) API breaking changes .
