public class DefaultSpringSecurityContextSource

ContextSource implementation which uses Spring LDAP's LdapContextSource as a base class. Used internally by the Spring Security LDAP namespace configuration.

From Spring Security 2.5, Spring LDAP 1.3 is used and the ContextSource interface provides support for binding with a username and password. As a result, Spring LDAP ContextSource implementations such as LdapContextSource may be used directly with Spring Security.

Spring LDAP 1.3 doesn't have JVM-level LDAP connection pooling enabled by default. This class sets the pooled property to true, but customizes the DirContextAuthenticationStrategy used to disable pooling when the DN doesn't match the userDn property. This prevents pooling for calls to AbstractContextSource.getContext(String, String) to authenticate as specific users.
