The SDS (SQL Directory Service) bundle provides means to manage a set of database tables maintaining users and groups for some application.

It provides a DOJO based web interface to manage the users and groups and group memberships.

Putting SDS together with org.clazzes.login.sql (1.3.2+) provides a complete standalone authentication service and management to use for a set of standalone applications running in the same OSGi container.
