JXplorer has been a long running project, and would not have been possible without the help of many people. In particular I'd like to thank:
Trudi Ersvaer for the huge amount of work she has done co-developing JXplorer with me, especially her work on binary attribute handling and the graphical search option, but also all her other work, including but not limited to debugging difficult problems in the depths of the ldap and html handling code.
Van Bui for providing the bulk of the excellent built in Certificate Viewer.
Sergei Nagirner for using, and helping test, both editor plugins and the configurable security provider architecture.
Jason Paul for setting up and explaining the ant build system, and introducing us to junit testing and log4j.
The QA Team at eTrust Directory, Mooroolbark Australia, for all their work testing JX on multiple platforms, using different languages, with different directories...
Computer Associates have been fantastic in releasing this major piece of code. In particular I'd like to thank:
Dennis Batcheldor for encouraging the original idea
Rick Harvey and Eugene Dozortsev for pushing the idea through
Donald Leclair for championing it during heavy weather.
Open Source Resources
JXplorer, and this site, use a number of open source resources, without which creating and releasing this code would be very difficult:
Source Forge for hosting the cvs repository.
The Apache Foundation for providing many of the tools we use (esp ant and log4j).
JUnit of www.junit.org for their excellent unit testing package.
... very sincere thanks to all those who
helped make this possible!
