OpenDS 2.0 Released

Posted on July 26, 2009

OpenDS 2.0, Sun’s Open Source LDAPv3 Directory Server, has hit the proverbial shelves. Announcement, Release Notes, and Documentation are available.

As always, OpenDS is the easiest directory server to install ever, with a JNLP Web-Start install application that gets you going quickly and effortlessly. But my favorite feature since 1.0 is the inclusion of a very intuitive and powerful GUI Control Panel which can handle everything from starting and stopping, to importing/exporting schemas and even includes a full schema browser.

If you want something more structured than OpenLDAP but less complex than Sun’s Directory Server Enterprise Edition (DSEE), OpenDS is an excellent option! Try it out!
