OpenDS Standard Edition (SE) 1.0 Ships
Today, Sun releases OpenDS Standard Edition (SE) 1.0, the supported version of an open-source, LDAP directory server. The benefits are many: easy, fast installation; interactive command-line interface; high performance; interoperability. Sun senior product line manager Daniel Raskin adds that OpenDS 1.0.0, the recently released community version, is "an embedded configuration store and user store" in OpenSSO, Sun's open Web access management project.
I also enjoyed reading yesterday's posting by OpenDS community leader, Ludo Poitou, on the accomplishments of OpenDS to date. As he points out, you can participate in the project and network with like-minded users and developers in many ways.
