In previous releases, Communications Express used the following APIs and libraries to establish connections and fetch information from an LDAP store:
Domain MAP API (which a part of Communications Express) if Communications Express was deployed using Schema 1 mode.
Access Manager SDK if Communications Express was deployed using Schema 2
This made Communications Express dependent on Access Manager in Schema 2 mode even though Access Manager is not mandatory for it to work apart from just connecting and fetching information from the LDAP store. Starting this release, this dependency on Access Manager for Schema 2 has been removed. Communications Express is now shipped with a new Domain MAP API for Schema 2.
As a result of this, users who log in to Communications Express can not log on to Access Manager Console.
