Some experiments with Drupal and OpenDS…

Drupal LogoVia the Four Kitchens‘ blog, David Timothy Strauss sees some similarities between Drupal Nodes and the Directory Information Tree of an LDAP server such as OpenDS, making a parallel between the Decorator Pattern used when developing Node types and the possibility to decorate directory entries with Auxiliary object classes.

He also realizes the benefits of storing the nodes in a directory server that supports multi-master replication, providing high availability and scalability for Drupal servers.

I hope we will hear soon from David’s experiments with using OpenDS as a Node storage engine.

PS: David, you’re welcome to share your experience and comments on the OpenDS Users mailing list.

Another OpenDS – GlassFish tutorial

JYeary
Java evangelist John Yeary just posted a detailed, well illustrated tutorial for setting up LDAP based authentication and authorization with GlassFish and OpenDS. The tutorial is similar to the one published on OpenDS Wiki a while ago, but adds the required steps to enable SSL and completely secure the authentication phase.
