Why is Spring LDAP not on GitHub and is the project active?
just want to ask: What is the status of Spring LDAP project?
- It seems that it is the only top level Spring project that has not been migrated to GitHub.
- Not much has been done on the source (apart from some minor changes to the logging levels).
I know that LDAP is still the same so there is no necessity for excessive activity. But still, I feel that there is close to zero attention given to the project (I am assuming by JIRA activity and the GitHub migration).
Thank you for any information on this.

I'm asking myself exactly the same question. Moreover, the Spring LDAP project is not listed on this welcome page of the Spring project : http://www.springsource.org/projects.
If it's discontinued, it's really a pain because a such convenient LDAP library is a must have when you have to interact with a LDAP. Natural Java implementation (the JDK one) sucks, and there aren't really a lot of alternatives. Most of all, Object Directory Mapping “à la” JPA is really nice.

the project is listed in the welcome page under More Spring Projects, but still looks not maintained and I wonder if I should use it or just go with plain jndi.
browsing the forum posts i don't see active developers answering questions.

The fact is that Spring LDAP is a breeze while plain JNDI is a pain… Will try to see if I can contact somebody to get information on that through some other way than the forum.
