JNDI Adapter overview

Use the Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI) Adapter to enable maps to look up, add, modify and delete entries in external directories, and retrieve the results that these operations return so that they can be reused in a map.

The following JNDI service providers are supported:

  • LDAP
  • COS Naming
  • RMI
  • DNS
  • File System
  • WebLogic

Supporting a service provider involves the adapter recognizing it as a valid protocol, and the availability of a supported schema.

The adapter uses XML parsing to parse the stream passed to an output card. The JNDI Adapter uses a standard Java-based XML parser (Xerces).

See your Oracle documentation for an overview of the JNDI architecture.
