Welcome to the White Pages Application course. This is one of a series of DeveloperNet University courses which can help you learn Novell Directory Services (NDS) programming.

This course will take you through the process of programming a "White Pages" application. The purpose of a "White Pages" application is to allow users to look up information about members of a community, something like the white-pages in a telephone book. The "White Pages" application developed in this course allows users to browse and search for employees in a company, to view their pictures, obtain phone numbers, titles, and so on.

The course consists of "blocks" of lessons and optional self-assessment tests.

The introduction is what you are reading now. The hi-lighted block in the course graphic at the top of the page denotes this.

The "Basic Concepts" lessons describe the pieces of NDS and how they interact. In order to successfully complete the course you must have a firm understanding of directory concepts.

(optional)

The "Application Concepts" lessons describe the application you will be developing during the course. In order to successfully complete the course you must have a firm understanding of the application you are trying to build.

(optional)

The "Setup" lesson provides detailed setup instructions that you must perform before you can start building the target application.

The "Writing OrgChart" lessons teach you how to do the programming to authenticate, read attribute values, search, and read stream type attribute values. Upon completion of these lessons you will have developed the first part of the target application.

The "Writing OrgBuilder" lessons teach you how to code a schema extension, create an NDS object, write "string" type attribute values, and write "stream" type attribute values. This is the second part of the target application.
