Trey Drake: Why is an OpenDS based Atom server interesting?
- I have yet to see an Atom/APP implementation application that is identity aware. That is, a server that has intrinsic user knowledge with regards to roles, authorization, authentication mechanisms and user relationships
- Most certainly not file based. Resources posted and fetched are stored in the directory thus enabling synchronization, access control, search, etc.
- Powerful, ReST search based on LDAP Urls
- Built on a scalable architecture. Back-ended by OpenDS, front-ended by Glassfish application server, and written atop Java
