As a remedy, Deploying OpenLDAP, by Tom Jackiewicz, delves into the logic and practical application of directories. For a programmer that already knows advanced programming implementation, but doesnâ€™t fully understand how all pieces fit together, this book surpasses explaining â€œwhat is,â€ to instead show â€œhow to.â€
â€œI chose OpenLDAP as the platform because the open-source community encourages standardization and doesnâ€™t focus on the proprietary features of commercial systems,â€ Jackiewicz explains. â€œWhether or not OpenLDAP is your choice for a directory within your organization, the lessons youâ€™ll learn about directory design and integration will be useful.â€
Highlights of Deploying OpenLDAP:
* Explains how to consolidate data, plan for data creation and migration, and create the most useful infrastructure
* Clarifies configuration files and the base set of tools
* Shows how to integrate LDAP into the userâ€™s current environment based upon available APIâ€™s
â€œThe goal of this book is to show you the types of decisions youâ€™ll need to make about your OpenLDAP environment before even downloading any software,â€ Jackiewicz says.
