Well, JLDAP (originally developed by Novell) is part of OpenLDAP
Software (but distributed separately).  That is, it is software
developed by the OpenLDAP Project (an activity organized of the

actively contribute.   At present, we have contributions for JLDAP
from a number of folks, but Novell folks remain active in JLDAP.
Others are welcomed to contribute.
