Enhance existing LDAP Realm or define a new LDAP Realm which handles Failover and a few other features requested by developers on GF mailing lists. Here are the specific feature requests by GlassFish developers on mailing lists :
1. Failover (among list of replicas/backups),
The LDAP Login Module in JDK : (http://download.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/jre/api/security/jaas/spec/com/sun/security/auth/module/LdapLoginModule.html)
So one approach is to define a new LDAPRealm that makes use of this JDK LDAP Login Module. Then Parity with existing LDAPRealm in GlassFish in terms of its features will not be an issue. Such a realm can then be provided to developers as a separate download rather than make it part of GlassFish V3.2 code base.

ADMIN GUI/CLI Impact
None. Since the Security Module is the one that defines the list of Pre-Defined Realms as a CLI, so the security team would take care of it should we decide to include this as a new Pre-Defined Realm.
The other approach is to fix the existing LDAPRealm in GlassFish to additionally support all these features in which case again there is no Impact on Admin GUI/CLI.
