Summary

In this chapter you learned about Java's Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI) and how it can be used with any directory service implementation. The naming interface allows you to store and retrieve objects by associating a human readable name with an object. The directory interface extends this concept to include attributes and provides the means to conduct searches based on search filters and attribute lists.

Now that you understand the concepts and the main interfaces behind JNDI, you can use the techniques on a directory service, be it a local hard drive or an Internet-wide domain.
