An Attempt to make Uniform resource identifier for the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol

Introduction

This is an attempt to make a Uniform Resource Identifier for the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).

Background

While working with DirectoryEntry, I encountered some errors due to the LDAP Path. So I decided to make an attempt to create a Uniform Resource Identifier for the LDAP path.

Using the Code

Using the LDAPUri class is straight forward.

The following code demonstrates building an LDAP path part-wise:

LDAPUri LDAPUriTest = new LDAPUri();
LDAPUriTest.Protocol = LDAPProtocol.LDAP;
LDAPUriTest.Attributes.Add(new LDAPAttribute
    (LDAPAttributeType.CommonNames, "Computers"));
LDAPUriTest.Attributes.Add(new LDAPAttribute(LDAPAttributeType.DomainComponent, "www"));
LDAPUriTest.Attributes.Add(new LDAPAttribute
    (LDAPAttributeType.DomainComponent, "codeproject"));
LDAPUriTest.Attributes.Add(new LDAPAttribute(LDAPAttributeType.DomainComponent, "com"));

The above code returns the following:

  • LDAPUriTest.Port - 389
  • LDAPUriTest.Protocol - LDAPProtocol.LDAP
  • LDAPUriTest.LDAPPathShort - CN=Computers,DC=www,DC=codeproject,DC=com
  • LDAPUriTest.LDAPPath - LDAP://CN=Computers,DC=www,DC=codeproject,DC=com

The following code demonstrates building an LDAP path by throwing the string direct into the LDAPUri Class constructor:

LDAPUri LDAPUriTest = new LDAPUri(LDAP://CN=Computers,DC=www,DC=codeproject,DC=com);
or:
LDAPUri LDAPUriTest = new LDAPUri("CN=Computers,DC=www,DC=codeproject,DC=com");

The above code returns the following:

  • LDAPUriTest.Port - 389
  • LDAPUriTest.Protocol - LDAPProtocol.LDAP
  • LDAPUriTest.LDAPPathShort - CN=Computers,DC=www,DC=codeproject,DC=com
  • LDAPUriTest.LDAPPath - LDAP://CN=Computers,DC=www,DC=codeproject,DC=com

Why?

When using the LDAPUri, the Path will be validated and will always be returned correctly.
