Reference com.day.commons.simplejndi.impl.ContextService in component

Hi,

I am implementing a component which can validate email address.

For using MX record to validate email, I need to use jndi as below:

  1. int doLookup( String hostName ) throws NamingException { 
  2.     Hashtable env = new Hashtable(); 
  3.     env.put("java.naming.factory.initial"
  4.             "com.sun.jndi.dns.DnsContextFactory"); 
  5.     DirContext ictx = new InitialDirContext( env ); 
  6.     Attributes attrs =  
  7.        ictx.getAttributes( hostName, new String[] { "MX" }); 
  8.     Attribute attr = attrs.get( "MX" ); 
  9.     if( attr == null ) return( 0 ); 
  10.     return( attr.size() ); 
  11.   } 

In osgi container, usage of standard JNDI APIs could break modularity in OSGI applications. As expected, directly using javax.naming.directory.InitialDirContext gives javax.naming.NotContextException: Not an instance of DirContext.

Then tried to use com.day.commons.simplejndi.impl.ContextService and the component was in satisfied state.

Below is the error log:

Could anybody shed a light on how to use JNDI in an AEM component?

the class "com.day.commons.simplejndi.impl.ContextService" is not exported by the Simple JNDI Bundle, thus you cannot consume it in that way.

there are other ways available to validate email adresses, which do not require JNDI, for example here: EmailValidator (Apache Commons Validator 1.6 API)
