Chapter 140. Spring LDAP

Spring LDAP Component

Available since Camel 2.11
The spring-ldap: component provides a Camel wrapper for Spring LDAP.
Maven users will need to add the following dependency to their pom.xml for this component:
<dependency>
    <groupId>org.apache.camel</groupId>
    <artifactId>camel-spring-ldap</artifactId>
    <version>x.x.x</version>
    <!-- use the same version as your Camel core version -->
</dependency>

URI format

spring-ldap:springLdapTemplate[?options]
Where springLdapTemplate is the name of the Spring LDAP Template bean. In this bean, you configure the URL and the credentials for your LDAP access.

Options

Name Type Description
operation String The LDAP operation to be performed. Must be one of search, bind, or unbind.
scope String The scope of the search operation. Must be one of object, onelevel, or subtree, see also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lightweight_Directory_Access_Protocol#Search_and_Compare

Usage

The component supports producer endpoint only. An attempt to create a consumer endpoint will result in an UnsupportedOperationException. The body of the message must be a map (an instance of java.util.Map). This map must contain at least an entry with the key dn that specifies the root node for the LDAP operation to be performed. Other entries of the map are operation-specific (see below).
The body of the message remains unchanged for the bind and unbind operations. For the search operation, the body is set to the result of the search, see http://static.springsource.org/spring-ldap/site/apidocs/org/springframework/ldap/core/LdapTemplate.html#search%28java.lang.String,%20java.lang.String,%20int,%20org.springframework.ldap.core.AttributesMapper%29.

Bind

The message body must have an entry with the key attributes. The value must be an instance of javax.naming.directory.Attributes This entry specifies the LDAP node to be created.

Unbind

No further entries necessary, the node with the specified dn is deleted.
