by Sven B. Schreiber

As the core protocol of the Active Directory Services (ADS) built into Windows 2000 and Microsoft(r) Exchange, Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is a staple of enterprise development and an essential technology for systems developers.

Focusing specifically on Microsoft's implementation of the LDAP protocol, Developing LDAP and ADSI Clients for Microsoft(r) Exchange presents essential technical information and real-world techniques for building LDAP and Active Directory Services Interface (ADSI) clients for Microsoft(r) Exchange 5.x servers. It provides extensive code examples that demonstrate the protocol in action. The accompanying CD-ROM is the most comprehensive collection of LDAP resources available containing high-level utility libraries and reusable applications that can be embedded directly into your own applications.

You will find an overview of LDAP fundamentals, including the X.500 Directory standard, LDAP versions 2 and 3, and the C LDAP API. The book goes well beyond these basics and details how native LDAP maps into ADSI objects, methods, and properties. It walks you step-by-step through the process of writing LDAP and ADSI clients for Windows and Exchange, using sample applications for each technology that highlight their similarities and differences. This resource gives you the experience-based knowledge and software tools you need to put LDAP to work in a Microsoft environment.

Specific topics covered include:

How LDAP fits into the TCP/IP protocol suite and relates to Windows Sockets ASN.1 and BER Using LDAP to manage Exchange 5.5 The LDAP API Detailed information on Win32 client implementation Using ADSI on LDAP

This is a really good soup-to-nuts introduction to directory services under Microsoft. There is tons of sample code in this book, which I find very helpful. The language is C, with a MS flavor to it. There is an amazing amount of detail in this book, and the author takes great care to explain some difficult concepts. Definitely pick this one up if you are doing MS directory development.
First came a theoretical explanation then very detailed code. There are a lot of references to more detailed information on similar topics if the reader chooses to go off on a tangent on his own. This book has been a great springboard for me. The author does a great job of covering the art writing LDAP and ADSI clients separately and then bringing them together for a very nice compare and contrast.
