ldap:ldapServerBean[?options]

The ldapServerBean portion of the URI refers to a DirContext bean in the registry. The LDAP component only supports producer endpoints, which means that an ldap URI cannot appear in the from at the start of a route.

You can append query options to the URI in the following format, ?option=value&option=value&...

Name Default Value Description
base ou=system The base DN for searches.
scope subtree Specifies how deeply to search the tree of entries, starting at the base DN. Value can be object, onelevel, or subtree.
pageSize No paging used. When specified the LDAP module uses paging to retrieve all results (most LDAP Servers throw an exception when trying to retrieve more than 1000 entries in one query). To be able to use this, an LdapContext (subclass of DirContext) has to be passed in as ldapServerBean (otherwise an exception is thrown)
returnedAttributes Depends on LDAP Server (could be all or none) . Comma-separated list of attributes that should be set in each entry of the result

The URI, ldap:ldapserver, references a Spring bean with the ID, ldapserver. The ldapserver bean may be defined as follows:

<bean id="ldapserver" class="javax.naming.directory.InitialDirContext" scope="prototype">
  <constructor-arg>
    <props>
      <prop key="java.naming.factory.initial">com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtxFactory</prop>
      <prop key="java.naming.provider.url">ldap://localhost:10389</prop>
      <prop key="java.naming.security.authentication">none</prop>
    </props>
  </constructor-arg>
</bean>

The preceding example declares a regular Sun based LDAP DirContext that connects anonymously to a locally hosted LDAP server.

[Note]Note

DirContext objects are not required to support concurrency by contract. It is therefore important that the directory context is declared with the setting, scope="prototype", in the bean definition or that the context supports concurrency. In the Spring framework, prototype scoped objects are instantiated each time they are looked up.

[Note]Note

Apache Camel 1.6.1 and Apache Camel 2.0 include a fix to support concurrency for LDAP producers. ldapServerBean contexts are now looked up each time a request is sent to the LDAP server. In addition, the contexts are released as soon as the producer completes.
