version 2 is now available in maven central.

Quick Start Guide
These search examples all leverage the SearchOperation class. For more details on searching and more control over the search operation in general, see the search operation documentation.
For more details on authentication, see the authentication documentation.
What changed between v1 and v2?
- Ldaptive is no longer a wrapper API around other Java libraries. It now includes it’s own LDAP protocol implementation.
- The try-finally paradigm used for connection management has been removed. All operations use a connection factory and implement that pattern internally.
- Most classes now include static builders.
SearchExecutorfunctionality is now included in
SearchOperation, that class has been removed.
SortBehaviorhas been removed in favor of providing static sort methods on individual classes.
- Search result cache implementations have been removed. It’s trivial for application to do their own caching.
- Transcoders have been moved to the
SearchFilterhas been renamed
- Exceptions occur for I/O or configuration related problems, not LDAP server messages. To configure exception behavior see
setThrowConditionon operations and
