LDAP library


#1

Hi.

I wanted to gauge the general feeling of the community towards LDAP.
Do you use LDAP from JRuby? If so, which library do you use: jruby-
ldap, ruby-net-ldap, or something else?

I spent some time looking at implementing LDAP interface with FFI.
While I learned some good stuff with FFI doing so, I wonder if it is
worthwhile to go on.

I’m using ruby-net-ldap with JRuby. Since it is pure Ruby, it works
fine in JRuby without any modifications and it offers everything I
need.

I chose ruby-net-ldap, because ruby-ldap uses a C extension and can’t
be used from JRuby as is.

I have not tested jruby-ldap though, so I can’t say much about it.

ruby-net-ldap for me too. It works fine for simple ldap lookups.
Haven’t
tried doing more complex LDAP interactions with it.

I’m using it for adding new elements and attribute changes etc. as well.
