LiQID

LDAP innoQ ID Manager

Abstract

This is Library should help java developers to use LDAP-Directories in a simple way. Without the hazzle of JNDI (Java Naming and Directory Interface).

Model

TBD

Diagram needs to be updated.

Utils

TBD

LDAP-Connector

Building:

You need a proper Configuration in a properties file. There are 3 possibilities to define the location of this file:

  1. via Code with setting Configuration.setPropertiesFile(....) before you instantiate the LDAPHelper.
  2. store the file in the default location: user_dir/.liqid/liqid.properties
  3. use the Enviroment Variabel LIQID_PROPERTIES to set the location of the properties file.

Configuration

This Lib needs to have some proper Configuration to work. You can use a separate Properties File or you can add the necessary entries to your existing Java Application Configuration.

$ java -jar ldap-connector-1.3-SNAPSHOT.jar -generate

will create an example liqid.properties:

# example liqid.properties
# created 22.01.14 21:47
# created with java -jar ldap-connetor.jar -generate

LDAP Settings

LDAP Listing, divided by ","

ldap.listing=ldap1

Default LDAP (with leading information)

default.ldap=ldap1

Mandatory Configuration:

ldap.user.objectClasses=person
ldap.group.objectClasses=groupOfUniqueNames

OUs for this LDAP instances

ldap1.ou_people=ou=users
ldap1.ou_group=ou=roles

ldap|ldaps :// :

ldap1.url=ldap://localhost:389
ldap1.principal=dc=Manager,dc=example,dc=com
ldap1.credentials=password
ldap1.base_dn=dc=example,dc=com

Optional Configuration:

Use for Self-Signed Certifcates of use own Keystore

# ldap1.disable.cert.validation=true

User ID Attribute - DEFAULT: uid

# ldap1.user.id.attribute=cn

User ObjectClass - DEFAULT: person

# ldap1.user.object.class=person

Group ID Attribute - DEFAULT: cn

# ldap1.group.id.attribute=cn

Group ObjectClass - DEFAULT: groupOfNames

# ldap1.group.object.class=groupOfUniqueNames

Group Member Attribute - DEFAULT: member

# ldap1.group.member.attribute=uniqueMember

Define your own Keystore here:

# keystore.password=changeme
# keystore.path=/Users/philipp/.liqid/liqid.keystore

You can change the location of that file manually via

Configuration.setPropertiesLocation("/var/apps/config/liqid.properties");

The Default location is ~/.liqid/liqid.properties

Logging

The Helper will Log to stdout as Standard. You can change the Logger, with

LdapHelper#setLog(com.innoq.liqid.log.Log log)

Examples

Get an Instance of LdapHelper

// using the configured Default Instance
LdapHelper helper = LdapHelper.getInstance();

or

// using Instance named ldap1
LdapHelper helper = LdapHelper.getInstance("ldap1");

Loading a User from the LDAP Directory

public void testUserLoad() {
    // loads an user with uid "test" from LDAP
    LdapUser ldapUser = (LdapUser) helper.getUser("test");

    // loads a preset test-user
    LdapUser testUser = getTestUser();
    
    // compares both users
    LOG.log(Level.INFO, "testUser: {0}", testUser);
    LOG.log(Level.INFO, "ldapUser: {0}", ldapUser);
    assertTrue("should be test: " + testUser + " ldap: " + ldapUser,
        testUser.equals(ldapUser));
}

Creating a new User in the LDAP Directory

public void testUserCreate() {
    LdapUser user = helper.getUserTemplate("foobar");
    try {
        if (HELPER.setUser(user)) {
            LOG.log(Level.INFO, "created User {0}", user.getName());
        }
    } catch (Exception ex) {
        LOG.log(Level.SEVERE, "setUser fails", ex);
    }
    user = HELPER.getUser("foobar");
    assertFalse(user.isEmpty());
}	

For more Examples have a look into the JUnit Test Files.
