SDS (SQL Directory Service)


The SDS (SQL Directory Service) bundle provides means to manage a set of database tables maintaining users and groups for some application.

It provides a DOJO based web interface to manage the users and groups and group memberships.

Putting SDS together with org.clazzes.login.sql (1.3.2+) provides a complete standalone authentication service and management to use for a set of standalone applications running in the same OSGi container.

Installation in an OSGi container

The SDS service is provided as an OSGi bundle, which may be activated by

obr:deploy sds.api
obr:deploy sds.impl
obr:deploy sds.web

Installation on a Debian host

This only works well for a Karaf using /etc/apache-karaf as configuration directory, like ITEG's apache-karaf distribution.

cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d
test -f any-sds-1.list || wget
apt-get update sds-bundles apache-karaf-sds-bundles-activator
