OpenDJ (aka OpenDS) integration series of articles

Sun Microsystems merger with Oracle has created a gap not only in the identity market but also in the continuity of the Sun identity offerings. Once a market leader (and for the moment being still is), Sun Java System Directory Server (also known under many other marketing names such as SunONE and iPlanet) has uncertain future as the new pricing model (i.e. it is not getting any cheaper) puts the customers in a situation to look for the alternatives. What Sun thought of being it’s own open source alternative, OpenDS, does not have a very active development and the users keep asking what is the strategy of Oracle for the ex-Sun products as the roadmap has not been updated ever since the merger. Fortunately, a young Norwegian company called ForgeRock has taken on the task of reviving Sun’s open source offering and fill the gap created by Oracle. One of their products is OpenDJ, a living version of OpenDS.

OpOpenDJ aka OpenDSenDJ and OpenDS are essentially the same product which was developed by the same people who developed the original SJS Directory Server. As of the Oracle-Sun merger, the development team moved on to ForgeRock where they keep the development active. Although the maturity level of the product is quite high, the amount of information around it is not sufficient. Our goal at profiq is to start a series of articles on different aspects of integration of OpenDJ with other popular open source products and rise the awareness of this great product.

Let’s make LLMs generate JSON!

In this article, we are going to talk about three tools that can, at least in theory, force any local LLM to produce structured output: LM Format Enforcer, Outlines, and Guidance. After a short description of each tool, we will evaluate their performance on a few test cases ranging from book recommendations to extracting information from HTML. And the best for the end, we will show you how forcing LLMs to produce a structured output can be used to solve a very common problem in many businesses: extracting structured records from free-form text.

Notiondipity: What I learned about browser extension development

Me and many of my colleagues at profiq use Notion for note-taking and work organization. Our workspaces contain a lot of knowledge about our work, plans, or the articles or books we read. At some point, a thought came to my mind: couldn’t we use all this knowledge to come up with project ideas suited to our skills and interests?

From ChatGPT to Smart Agents: The Next Frontier in App Integration

It has been over a year since OpenAI introduced ChatGPT and brought the power of AI and large language models (LLMs) to the average consumer. But we could argue that introducing APIs for seamlessly integrating large language models into apps developed by companies and independent hackers all over the world can be the true game changer in the long term. Developers are having heated discussions about how we can utilize this technology to develop truly useful apps that provide real value instead of just copying what OpenAI does. We want to contribute to this discussion by showing you how we think about developing autonomous agents at profiq. But first a bit of background.
