Supported Features in the LDAP Binding Component
The LDAP BC allows anonymous and authenticated connections. Users can perform numerous tasks when connected to an external LDAP system, including adding an entry, attribute, or value. Users can also modify, delete and search for a value or attribute entry.
The following features are supported in the LDAP Binding Component.
- Standard JBI Binding Component functions, including component and service unit lifecycle management, configuration at both installation and runtime, service provisioning and consumption, and so on.
- Standard LDAP functions, such as anonymous connections, adding and modifying entries, adding and removing values, searching for entries, and so on.
- Multiple security protocols, including SSL, TLS, TLS on Demand, keystore and truststore, and credential files.
- Multiple operations in the same WSDL file. The LDIF parser implementation allows you to create a WSDL from an LDAP LDIF file. The WSDL can be created with all four operations in the same WSDL.
- Automatic WSDL file generation using an LDAP WSDL Wizard to help you through the setup steps.
- Design-time WSDL validations.
- LDAP WSDL extensibility elements to further configure the WSDL document.
- Application configurations and variables in the runtime environment.
- Thread management.
- Connection management, including connection pools.
- Fault handling.
- Component logging and monitoring.
- Message exchange redelivery capability and graceful recovery.
