OpenDJ is an LDAPv3 compliant open source directory service, which has been developed for the Java platform, providing a high performance, highly available, and secure store for managing identities.

It is an alternative to OpenLDAP.


opendjAUR package contains LDAP server and many LDAP related utilities such as ldapsearch which is also provided by OpenLDAP.

Note: Tools from opendjAUR are prefixed with opendj- to avoid causing conflicts.
