UnboundID announced version 2.1 of the UnboundID Directory Server and version 1.1 of the UnboundID LDAP SDK for Java.
The UnboundID Directory Server is based on a new identity management platform designed to process billions of entries and transactions. This latest version provides several enhancements, including:
- Large Attribute Support – improves the performance of identity management deployments that process large and complex identity attributes, such as “spoken name” in voicemail systems. The platform gives on-demand access to such attributes so that ongoing pressure to the system is eliminated and performance is improved
- Improved Auditing – extends the UnboundID logging mechanism to include new repositories, such as RDBMS systems, which, coupled with fine-grained log filtering, enables administrators to build searchable logs. As result, users can easily create audit trails of those making access changes to sensitive data.
The new version of the UnboundID LDAP SDK for Java is designed to make identity management-dependent applications faster to develop and easier to maintain. It can also be used for coding and ongoing maintenance of applications coded with other LDAP SDKs, such as JNDI and the Mozilla SDK. Key enhancements include:
- Application Migration Support – includes new facilities that automate the migration of applications developed using the JNDI and Mozilla Directory LDAP SDKs to the UnboundID architecture
- Licensing – with support for the LGPL license, in addition to a free “right-to-use” license or GPLv2, developers have more rights to embed and redistribute the technology they develop using the SDK.
