Activiti LDAP Integration.

Question asked by bsethuramalingam on Apr 23, 2013

I am trying to get configured with our enterprise LDAP which is Novell E-Directory.  I have followed all the steps suggested by the book, Activiti in Action. Implemented UserManager, GroupManger from the sample code provided in "Activiti In Action" book.

From the debug messages, I am able to see my user-id  is validated with LDAP and the result is positive but still fails to render the Activiti-Explorer. It just hangs at Activiti-Explorer login page. No further error messages. Nothing.

But if I remove LDAP configuration,  everything looks good with KERMIT id and  I am able to see Activiti-Explorer like 'fresh out-of-the-box'

My Setup
Tomcat 7.0.34
Activiti 5.12 or 5.12.1
Browser : IE or Firefox. (Cleared the cache each time before I login).

I had it working with Activiti 5.11 , which I was able to configure for 5.11 but lost the code. ..?
In 5.12, I see the ClassNames for User and Group objects changed to
org.activiti.engine.impl.persistence.entity.User –to–> org.activiti.engine.impl.persistence.entity.UserEntity
org.activiti.engine.impl.persistence.entity.UserManager –to–> org.activiti.engine.impl.persistence.entity.UserEntityManager

Do these changes make a difference..?

Where is the problem….? What is the necessary LDAP(Apache Standard) related JAR files I should have in Tomcat Server Classpath/Activiti-Explorer's WEB-INF/lib folder..?
If possible, please provide complete list of integrating Activiti with enterprise LDAP servers.

Please advise on  how to troubleshoot the problem.   

Any help is appreciated.
