LDAP Testing with Java: ApacheDS vs Embedded-LDAP-JUnit

Monday, July 4th, 2016

When writing applications that interchange information with LDAP directory services there is always the need to write integration tests for these components and services.

Therefore we need a the possibility to start-up an embedded LDAP server, fill it with test-data and control its life-cycle during the test-phases.

In the following tutorial I’d like to demonstrate two candidates that fulfil this purpose, the ApacheDS test integrations and a small library named embedded-ldap-junit.


Creating a LDAP server for your development environment in 5 minutes

Monday, June 13th, 2011

I am currently working on a plugin that needs to receive some information from an LDAP/Active Directory using JNDI. That’s why I needed to set up a directory server in a short time and I didn’t want to waste much effort for here.

Luckily for me the Apache Directory Studio saved my day and allowed me to set up everything I needed in a few minutes.

Short and sweet: In this tutorial I’m going to show you how to configure everything you need in your Eclipse IDE and finally how to query the created LDAP server with a tiny java client using JNDI.
