Being Global...

Some time ago, I enabled the ClustrMaps on my blog to get some idea of who was reading this space and where from.
And I must say I'm completely amazed by the global reach out of what I post here.
Below is a picture indicating the location of the readers from March 19 to May 20, 2009.


While I'm not surprise that most readers are from US and Europe, I find it interesting that the blog has been read from 94 different countries, some of which I cannot even place on the map.
The power of the Internet keeps amazing me everyday. Now it would be really cool if you, reader from one of those little isolated red dot, could leave a comment and tell me what you're interested in, and how you use OpenDS if you do.

Note that I do understand French, English and Spanish, so this leaves you some choice for leaving your comment. So don't be shy !

OpenDS 2.0.0 Release Candidate 1 is now available

Opends Logo TagThe OpenDS development team is very pleased to announce the immediate availability of OpenDS 2.0.0-RC1 which is the first release candidate for OpenDS 2.0.

OpenDS 2.0 has a number of new features over OpenDS 1.2.0 that was released in February 2009 :

  • A new mode for Multi-Master Replication providing greater consistency and availability of data: Assured Replication
  • Recurring tasks allow an administrator to schedule repeated tasks such as backups
  • New extensible matching rules and indexing allowing comparing, ordering of data according to specific locales and languages
  • Better monitoring information for the server and for Replication
  • Full compliance with RFC 4518 and matching of UTF-8 in attributes with a DirectoryString syntax
  • VLV indexes are now built during the Import
  • Several improvements in the Control Panel
  • Works with IBM JVM (Java 6 SR4 required)
  • Works by default with JConsole and VisualVM when JMX Connection Handler is enabled
  • Default settings and ergonomics have been improved reducing the need for tuning parts of the server
  • Greatly improved performances and stability over time of those performances
  • Resolved a possible security issue when Pre-ReadEntry, Post-ReadEntry and Assertion Controls were enabled

Overall, over 150 issues have been fixed. However, there are still a few issues with the release candidates, and more specifically upgrading from an earlier version is not functional. This should be fixed in the next release candidate.

Localization of the OpenDS messages is still work in progress and thus some messages can still appear in English when running a localized version of the server.

The purpose of the Release Candidate is to solicit one last round of testing before the final release.
So please test the OpenDS release with your client applications, in your environment or on your favorite platform.

If you do find a bug, please report it with Issue Tracker.

We welcome feedback. Please report you experience with OpenDS on our mailing lists, or on #opends IRC channel on Freenode.

OpenDS and LDAP naming services on the Identity Buzz Podcast

IdmbuzzbeeTwo weeks ago, Nick Wooler and I talked about LDAP Naming Services and OpenDS in a new episode of the famous Identity Management Buzz Podcast. We cover the basics of Naming services, why LDAP naming services are the way to go and how OpenDS fits in this picture, for Solaris, OpenSolaris but also the other operating systems.

For more information, you can check the Identity Management Starter Kits for using OpenDS as the OpenSolaris Naming Service.
To learn more about OpenDS, go to the open source main web site http://www.opends.org/.

A spotlight on OpenDS quality and the Quality Assurance team.

Opends Logo TagThis week the spotlights are turned on Gary Williams, the lead test engineer for the OpenDS project. He published a great article with Marina Sum on the topic the OpenDS open source project and Quality Assurance: Perspectives on Quality Assurance for OpenDS.

Gary and the quality assurance team develops tests, ran them on regular basis (over 30.000 unit tests and 2000 functional tests are run daily) and they are key in the reputation and the success of the OpenDS project:

"Our main goal is to deliver a quality product on schedule. As widely acclaimed as OpenDS is for its robust capabilities, we constantly strive for a better-performing product with more user-oriented features."

All tests are part of the project code repository or project documentation. You too can join the project and participate.
You can find more information about OpenDS quality assurance and the "Spirit of Testing" on OpenDS Wiki.

And to paraphrase the conclusion of the article : I feel fortunate and proud to be associated with Gary and his quality team, and look forward to the continued success of OpenDS as a superior global directory service.

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.

OpenDS: un annuaire LDAP en Java et open source

OpenDS the open source Java LDAP directory server

L'équipe de développement du projet OpenDS est heureuse d'annoncer la disponibilité de OpenDS 1.0.0, la première version stable du projet OpenDS.

 OpenDS 1.0.0 est un serveur d'annuaire conforme au standard LDAPv3 et supporte la plus part des extensions et schemas LDAP standard et expérimentaux, assurant ainsi une meilleure interopérabilité avec les applications clientes.

Avec une occupation mémoire limitée qui lui permet d'etre embarqué dans d'autres applications Java, OpenDS possède un ensemble riche d'interfaces de programmation qui permet d'étendre facilement ses services. 

 Un model de replication multi-maitres permet de garantir la haute disponibilité des données aussi bien en écriture qu'en lecture. Bien que le nombre de serveurs maitres soit illimité, le serveur OpenDS 1.0.0 a été testé sous stress continu avec 4 serveurs maitres. 

 OpenDS 1.0.0 comprend aussi:

  • Un outil d'installation graphique qui permet d'installer, configurer et lancer un serveur opérationel en quelques clicks et moins de 3 minutes
  • Un tableau de bord graphique
  • Un outil de configuration en ligne de commande permettant d'effectuer toutes les taches administratives en mode interactif ou scripté
  • Des politiques de sécurité et de gestion des mots de passe avancées
  • Des capacités de sauvegarde et de restauration des données avancées.
  • Une application web faisant passerelle entre LDAP et DSML.
  • Une documentation pour les utilisateurs et administrateurs, complete et validée.

La configuration par défaut du serveur OpenDS est conçue pour les developpeurs et évaluateurs utilisant des machines avec peu de ressources. Pour obtenir de bonnes performances en chargeant le serveur, il est important de positionner les bonnes options de lancement de la JVM et de proceder a certains reglages du serveur et de sa base de données. Des recommandations pour certains parametres de la JVM sont disponibles sur le Wiki de Documentation de OpenDS.

Bien que nous soyons fier et heureux de cette première version du serveur d'annuaire LDAP OpenDS, bien d'autres fonctionalités sont prevues :

  • Une intégration avec OpenSolaris
  • Transactions pour LDAP
  • Un model de replication "Assurée" qui garantirait qu'un changement est reçu par au moins 2 serveurs maitres avant l'acquitement vers le client
  • Un access vers le journal des changements afin de permettre une synchronisation avec des services exterieurs
  • Un outil graphique de configuration pour les taches les plus courantes.
  • La gestion de la sécurité à travers la couche SASL
  • Des performances encore améliorées
  • ...

Pour plus d'information sur les fonctionalités prévues, allez sur la page RoadMap du wiki OpenDS.

Pour plus d'information sur la version OpenDS 1.0.0, voyez les "Release Notes".

Le support pour OpenDS 1.0 sera bientot disponible auprès de Sun Microsystems.  

Un grand merci à toute l'équipe du projet OpenDS 1.0.0 : developpeurs, testeurs, redacteurs techniques...

OpenDS 1.0.0-build010 is now available

We have just uploaded OpenDS 1.0.0-build010, built from revision 3655 of our source tree, to our promoted builds folder. The direct link to ownload the core server is:

The direct link to download the DSML gateway is:

We have also updated the archive that may be used to install OpenDS via
Java Web Start. You may launch that using the URL
http://www2.opends.org/install/QuickSetup.jnlp, or visit
https://www.opends.org/wiki/page/OverviewOfTheQuickSetupTool for more

Detailed information about this build is available at

Major changes incorporated since OpenDS 1.0.0-build009 include:
  • Revision 3598 (Issues #2366 and #2186) -- Update indexes to order the keys before inserting them into the database. This ensures that no deadlocks occur between multiple add and modify operations. Also, disable lock timeouts for add and modify operations since deadlocks can not occur. This prevents transaction aborts and operation retry expiration due to lock timeouts of add and modify operations when the server is under high write load.
  • Revision 3607 (Issue # 1862) -- Provide verbosity options for the "upgrade" "setup" and "uninstall" commands.
  • Revision 3608 -- Increase the default value of the JVM heap size to 256Mb for building the server.
  • Revision 3610 -- Fix the permissions for Java Application Stubs used in MacOS X application bundles so that they are usable from within the WebStart installation.
  • Revision 3611 -- Set a fair ordering policy for the cacheLock and provide a better concurrency overall.
  • Revision 3612 (Issue #2785) -- Upgrade the Berkeley DB Java Edition version from 3.2.44 to 3.2.68.
  • Revision 3614 (Issue #2345) -- Provide the ability to monitor replication across a topology. Before this change, monitoring information for replication was restricted to the replication server itself, and the LDAP servers currently connected to it. With this change, each replication server exposes the delay for all replication servers in the topology.
  • Revision 3615 -- Provide a default "java.properties" file that includes information about setting the different java properties.
  • Revision 3616 (Issue #2787) -- Fix an issue in which replication sessions sometimes failed when a server disconnected and re-connected to the replication server in quick succession.
  • Revision 3617 (Issue #2794) -- Fix an issue in which delete operations were sometimes not replicated if they immediately followed a modify DN operation.
  • Revision 3619 (Issue #2107) -- Log publishers now prevent changing the log file permissions to an invalid value. The listeners will now reject changes that would prevent OpenDS from writing to the log files.
  • Revision 3621 -- Various improvements to the java properties tools.
  • Revision 3622 (Issue #2791) -- The "dsreplication enable" command always assumed that the administrator did not exist. This fix checks whether the specified administrator exists before creating it. Also fix an issue that caused "dsreplication enable" to fail if a user tried to enable a suffix between two servers that were already replicated.
  • Revision 3625 (Issue #2506) -- Fix a problem that caused "upgrade -r" not to work.
  • Revision 3626 (Issue #2797) -- The "cn" for the replication repair logger was incorrect.
  • Revision 3629 (Issue #2508) -- Fix a problem that caused "upgrade -a" not to work.
  • Revision 3630 (Issue #2650) -- The "import-ldif" command now provides information about JRE version and settings.
  • Revision 3631 (Issue #2778) -- Fix a null pointer exception that sometimes occurred when stopping replicated servers.
  • Revision 3637 (Issue #2482) -- Improve client-side referential integrity performance.
  • Revision 3638 (Issue #2799) -- Fix a null pointer exception that occurred when reverting an upgrade in interactive mode.
  • Revision 3639 (Issue #2780) -- Fix a problem in which "start-ds" did not work after reverting an upgrade from build 9 to build 8.
  • Revision 3644 (Issue #2647) -- Fix an issue in which the upgrade tool did not take into account the "99-user.ldif" file.
  • Revision 3651 (Issue #2784) -- Fix an issue in which the upgrade tool did not back up the "upgrade.bat" file, causing problems when reverting to a previous version, then attempting the upgrade again.
  • Revision 3654 (Issues #2786 and #2774) -- Fixes to the DSML Gateway war file.

OpenDS 0.8 has been released...

It's been a while since the 0.1 build of OpenDS was made available.

We've been doing so many improvements in the code that we jump to a 0.8 as we're definitely aiming for a 1.0 release by the end of the year.

 I can only encourage you to try it. It's simple, it's fast, it's just a click away.

 For the complete details of all the new features of build 0.8, read Neil's post on the subject.


CommunityOne and now JavaOne

It was a busy day yesterday for the first CommunityOne. 


The OpenDS, OpenSSO, OpenID booth drew lot of attention yesterday, with demos of an OpenID identity provider, an Atom Publishing Protocol server both leveraging OpenDS for storage, retrieval and authentication of users and blog posts.

We will be running the same demos every day of JavaOne in the Community Corner.

We also had a little bit of presence on stage as I did a presentation introducing OpenDS and Cool Stuff during the last session of the Glassfish track.

Staring on our booth yesterday:


Today is the real start of JavaOne with its set of announcements...  



This is the blog of a senior software engineer, specialized in LDAP, Directory Server and OpenDS. Ludovic Poitou works in France at the Grenoble Engineering Center, in the Directory Services Engineering team. Outside work, I love skiing and taking photo
