        This document is a step-by-step guide for Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM).

        The Active Directory directory service in Microsoft Windows 2000 and in Microsoft Windows®Server 2003 is the fastest growing directory service for intranets and extranets, as a result of its rich integration of directory support and security, scalability, and native Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) support. Active Directory in Windows Server 2003 builds on that success by supporting a number of new LDAP capabilities that are targeted for information technology (IT) professionals and applications developers. Active Directory Application Mode is one of these new capabilities. Organizations, independent software vendors (ISVs), and developers who want to integrate their applications with a directory service now have an additional capability in Active Directory that provides numerous benefits.

        With this document, you will be able to set up Active Directory Application Mode and get it running quickly, so that you can explore some of its new and important features.
