LDAP Series Part VI - Directory Service Modeling

  • Linux Journal; By Tom Adelstein (Posted by dcparris on Dec 2, 2006 2:31 AM EDT)
  • Groups: Linux; Story Type: News Story
LDAP services exist in a TCP/IP context. It's an Internet service that uses daemons, requires an administrator, configuration files and structure. In some ways LDAP resembles a Linux file system with a root, limbs instead of directories, etc. Unlike the directory configuration of an operating system, LDAP is flexible in its structuring. That flexibility translates into a design makeup you can simply create. We call the hierarchical model a Directory Information Tree (DIT). Whoever designs the DIT needs to know something about how to model data.

Response to ZDnet article on Medsphere

Dana Blankenhorn has posted an article regarding my claim thatMedsphere has betrayed the community on ZDnet.Is Medsphere taking it back, is a great article overall, but its conclusion is terrible. From the article:Medsphere's board probably feels it was a Little Red Hen, doing all the work for a lazy community's profit. In his defense, Dana is one of many people who do not understand that Medspheres business model relies entirely on the community-built VistA codebase. Given its current actions, this makes Medsphere alot more like a"slimy brown leech" than a"little red hen". Still I am glad to see that the mainstream blogs are starting the pick this up. It is important for Medsphere's board to see that this issue will only get bigger and bigger, as it recieves more publicity.

The Linux faithful were quick to dismiss Microsoft’s Windows Vista launch Thursday, saying it poses no threat to the adoption of the open-source operating system. Complex Vista pricing schemes and technical features will dog Microsoft and drive people to seek out Linux as an alternative to Vista, said Bruce Perens, founder of the Open Source Initiative.
