    Is JBoss JAAS LDAP suitable for a large enterprise ?

    Mike Westaway Newbie

      The JAAS LDAP authentication module uses the construct principalDNPrefix + username + principalDNSuffix to authenticate users.
      For example, uid=jduke,ou=People,dc=jboss,dc=org

      In a large organisation (eg 10,000+) it is unlikely the people will be managed as a single org unit.

      Is it possible to use a starting point and do subtree searching ? ie search across multiple org units ? Tomcat allows this.

      Thanks for any feedback,
      Mike
