1.3 will support direct authentication with a username and principal via the ContextSource interface, so we should be able to simplify our LDAP implementation substantially.
Luke Taylor said:
BindAuthenticator now uses the ContextSource to bind directly. It takes a BaseLdapContextSource now, so there isn’t an explicit dependency on DefaultSpringSecurityContextSource. The latter customizes the default behaviour of Spring LDAP’s AbstractContextSource, making normal Java LDAP pooling available for “manager” users but not for explicit binds to authenticate a user.
