JXplorer is a free, open source client for browsing Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) servers and LDAP Data Interchange Format (LDIF) files. It is released under an Apache-equivalent license. JXplorer is written in Java and is platform independent, configurable, and has been translated into a number of languages. The primary authors and maintainers are Chris Betts and Trudi Ersvaer, originally both working in the CA (then Computer Associates) eTrust Directory (now CA Directory) software lab in Melbourne, Australia.
Several common Linux distributions include JXplorer Software for LDAP server administration. The software also runs on BSD-variants, AIX, HP-UX, Mac OS X, Solaris, Microsoft Windows (2000, XP) and z/OS.
Key features are:

- optional LDAP filter constructor GUI; extensible architecture.
Version 3.3, the '10th Anniversary Edition' was released on July 2012. Overall the program has been downloaded over a million times from sourceforge and is bundled with several Linux distributions.
