Spring LDAP is a library to simplify LDAP programming in Java, built on the same principles as Spring Jdbc.

The LdapTemplate class encapsulates all the plumbing work involved in traditional LDAP programming, such as creating, looping through NamingEnumerations, handling Exceptions and cleaning up resources. This leaves the programmer to handle the important stuff - where to find data (DNs and Filters) and what to do with it (map to and from domain objects, bind, modify, unbind, etc.), in the same way that JdbcTemplate relieves the programmer of all but the actual SQL and how the data maps to the domain model.

In addition to this, Spring LDAP provides Exception translation from NamingExceptions to an unchecked exception hierarchy, as well as several utilities for working with filters, LDAP paths and attributes.

For detailed information on the project, please refer to the reference documentation and javadocs. See the changelog for detailed information on changes in the latest version.


All major releases of this library are available in the central Maven repository. The following components are available:

  • spring-ldap-core - the core Spring LDAP library
  • spring-ldap-core-tiger - the Spring LDAP Java 5 support library
  • spring-ldap-test - support classes that help LDAP with integration testing
  • spring-ldap-ldif-core - the Spring LDAP LDIF parsing library
  • spring-ldap-ldif-batch - the Spring Batch integration layer for the LDIF parsing library
  • spring-ldap-odm - The Object-Directory Mapping (ODM) framework

To include e.g. the spring-ldap-core component in your project, use the following dependency tag:


Milestone releases (such as release candidates) are available from the Spring framework milestone repo:

  <name>Spring Portfolio Milestone Repository</name>

Snapshot builds produced by the CI builds are available from the Spring framework snapshot repo:

  <name>Spring Portfolio Milestone Repository</name>

In order to e.g. try out the latest build snapshot of the core module, include the repository above and use the following dependency tag:


Note that while all milestone and snapshot builds have passed the (quite extensive) test suite, the artifacts here are obviously still work in progress. Feel free to use them for trying out new functionality and bug fixes for an upcoming version. Please report any problems or bugs in the issue tracker.
