OpenDS is fast approaching version 1.2 (Release Candidate 2 was released late January) and Ludo has been sharing many tips for this release. Examples include: Troubleshooting OpenDS database, Disabling Schema checking, and Troubleshooting indexes and search performances.

New in OpenDS 1.2 are SVR4 package for integration into OpenSolaris (with SMF and RBAC support), a data and schema browser (Control Panel), SASL support, and increased performance over the 1.0 release. Another major version (2.0) is planned for later this year with Assured Mode as its key feature.

As always, the software can be test-driven with the simplest possible JavaWebStart-powered install. See here for a couple of brief install videos.

Added - Ludo continues to post tips; also see Control the (LDAP) controls and performance from new ASN.1 library.

Other recent tips covers EJB 3.0 Compatibility and Migration, Introduction to jMaki, Configuring JAX-WS Handlers on the Client, EJB 3.0 Interceptors, Document Handling Using JAX-WS Dispatch and Provider APIs, and more.

You'll find the entire list of Enterprise Tech Tips here.
