UnboundID LDAP SDK for Java 2.3.6

We have just released the 2.3.6 version of the UnboundID LDAP SDK for Java. You can get the latest release online at the UnboundID Website or the SourceForge project page, and it’s also available in the Maven Central Repository.

This is primarily a maintenance release, containing bug fixes and some minor enhancements over the 2.3.5 version. A fully copy of the release notes for this version may be found on the UnboundID website, but some of the most notable changes include:

  • It is now possible to create a connection pool with a health check, without the need to set the health check after the pool has been created. The primary benefit of this approach is that the health check will be used for the initial set of connections that are established when the pool is created.
  • The LDIF change record implementations have been updated to add support for change records that include request controls.
  • Update the GSSAPI and DIGEST-MD5 SASL bind requests to support the use of the integrity and confidentiality quality of protection modes.
  • Improve support for processing asynchronous operations so that it is possible to invoke an asynchronous add, compare, delete, modify, or modify DN operation without needing to provide a result listener if the result will be accessed using the Future API. Also update the connection pool to make it possible to invoke multiple add, compare, delete, modify, modify DN, and/or search operations concurrently over the same connection as asynchronous operations.
  • Ensure that the thread-local connection pool uses the LDAPConnection.isConnected method as further verification that a connection is still established before attempting to use it.
  • Fix a bug in the in-memory directory server that prevented the updated values of certain attributes (e.g., modifiersName and modifyTimestamp) from appearing in the entry returned in a post-read response control.
  • Fix a potential thread safety bug in the get entry connection pool health check.
