Technote (FAQ)


How to add JNDI provider to the JRE in the Lotus Sametime 7.5.1 client


The attached jar file adds a Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI) Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) provider to the Java runtime environment (JRE) that currently ships with the Sametime® 7.5.1 client.

This new LDAP JNDI provider allows the creation of plugins that can access LDAP directories. This is new functionality to the Sametime 7.5.1 client.

Instructions for installation are:

  1. Detach the ibmldapprov.jar.
  2. Place the jar in the <sametime client install dir>/jre/lib/jclMax/opt-ext directory. This update is client side. The default folder will typically be C:\Program Files\IBM\Sametime Connect\jre\lib\jclMax\opt-ext.
  3. After the jar file has been placed in this directory the Sametime platform will need to be restarted.
  4. After the restart the JNDI LDAP provider will be available.
