Projects / Ganymede


Ganymede is a metadirectory system, primarily intended for UNIX-like environments, but capable of being run with some effort on any server supporting Java 1.1.7 or better. Ganymede supports NIS, DNS, and other network information services, and allows many administrators to work together simultaneously to administer defined subsets of your network directory data. Any system capable of running Java applets with Swing can run the Ganymede client.


Recent releases

    Release Notes: Some rare stability problems with the Ganymede server were fixed. The client is now able to work on a system with a local firewall in place. Some slight fixups were made for compatibility with JDK 1.5 beta 1.

    •  17 Dec 2002 07:47

      Release Notes: This maintenance release fixed a couple of permissions logic bugs, made some user interface improvements, and tweaked the runServer script to reduce GC loading on the server. A number of other, smaller improvements have also been incorporated. It is likely that this will be the last release to support JDK 1.1.

        Release Notes: This release contains a great deal of minor bug fixes and feature additions, along with some maintenance code cleanup. Ganymede 1.0.10 has a slightly better GUI in the client, and the server can now support the slightly customized md5Crypt algorithm used by the Apache httpd server. The transaction commit logic is now a bit more robust against unexpected failures in plugin logic as well.
