   <body>
-    <section name="Partitions">
-      <p>
-        Partitions are entry stores assigned to a naming context.  The idea
-        behind a partition is that it stores a subset of the Directory
-        Information Base (DIB).  Partitions can be implemented in any way so
-        long as they adhere to interfaces.
-      </p>
-
-      <subsection name="Status">
-        <p>
-          Presently Eve has a single partition implementation which is used for
-          both the system partition and user partitions.  It uses
-          <a href="http://jdbm.sourceforge.net/">JDBM</a> as the underlying
-          B+Tree implementation for storing entries.
-        </p>
-
-        <p>
-          Other implementations are possible.  I'm particularly interested in
-          memory based partitions either BTree based or based on something like
-          Prevayer.
-        </p>
-
-        <p>
-          Partitions have simple interfaces that can be used to align any data
-          source to the LDAP data model thereby accessing it via JNDI or via
-          LDAP over the wire.  This makes Eve very flexible as a bridge to
-          standardize access to disparate data sources and formats.  Dynamic
-          mapping based backends are also interesting.
-        </p>
-      </subsection>
-
-      <subsection name="System Partition">
-        <p>
-          The system partition is a very special partition that is hardcoded to
-          hang off of the <b>ou=system</b> naming context.  It is always present
-          and contains administrative and operational information needed by the
-          server to operate.  Hence its name.
-        </p>
-
-        <p>
-          Eve's subsystems will use this partition to store information critical
-          to their operation.  Things like triggers, stored procedures, access
-          control instructions and schema information can be maintained here.
-        </p>
-      </subsection>
-
-      <subsection name="Root Nexus">
-        <p>
-          Several partitions can be assigned to different naming contexts within
-          Eve so long as their names do not overlap such that one partition's
-          naming context is contained within anothers.  The root nexus is a fake
-          partition that does not really store entries.  It maps other entry
-          storing partitions to naming contexts and routes backing store calls
-          to the partition containing the entry associated with the operation.
-        </p>
-      </subsection>
-
-      <subsection name="User Partitions">
-        <p>
-          User partitions are partitions added by users.  When you download and
-          start using Eve you may want to create a separate partition to store
-          the entries of your application.  To us user (sometimes also referred
-          to as application) partitions are those that are not the system
-          partition!  In the following section we describe how a user partition
-          can be created in Eve.
-        </p>
-      </subsection>
-    </section>
-
-    <section name="Adding User Partitions">
-      <p>
-        Adding new application partitions to the server is a matter of
-        setting the right JNDI environment properties.  These properties are
-        used in both standalone and in embedded configurations.  We will show
-        you how to configure partitions by example using properties files and
-        programatically.
-      </p>
-
-      <subsection name="Using Properties Files">
-        <p>
-          Obviously properties files are not the best way to configure a large
-          system like an LDAP server.  However properties files are the JNDI
-          standard for pulling in configuration.  Eve as a JNDI provider tries
-          to honor this.  Hence the use of a properties file for configuration.
-          Below we have the configuration of two user defined partitions within
-          a properties file.  These partitions are for the naming contexts:
-          <code>dc=apache,dc=org</code> and <code>ou=test</code>.
-        </p>
-
-    <source>
-# all multivalued properties are space separated like the list of partions here
-eve.db.partitions=apache test
-
-# apache partition configuration
-eve.db.partition.suffix.apache=dc=apache,dc=org
-eve.db.partition.indices.apache=ou cn objectClass uid
-eve.db.partition.attributes.apache.dc=apache
-eve.db.partition.attributes.apache.objectClass=top domain extensibleObject
-
-# test partition configuration
-eve.db.partition.suffix.test=ou=test
-eve.db.partition.indices.test=ou objectClass
-eve.db.partition.attributes.test.ou=test
-eve.db.partition.attributes.test.objectClass=top organizationalUnit extensibleObject
-    </source>
-
-        <p>
-          Although somewhat ugly the way we use properties for settings does
-          work.  Hopefully we can build a tool on top of this to save the
-          user some hassle.  Another approach may be to use XML or something
-          easier to generate these properties from them.  For now its the best
-          non-specific means we have to inject settings through JNDI environment
-          Hashtables while still being able to load settings via properties
-          files.  Properties from proerties files are the common denominator
-          though.  Another means is however possible programatically.
-        </p>
-        <h3>Partition Id</h3>
-        <p>
-          Breifly we'll explain these properties and the scheme used.  A
-          partition's property set is associated as a set using the partition's
-          id.  All partition ids are listed as a space separated list using the
-          <b>eve.db.partitions</b> property: above it lists the ids for the two
-          partitions, <i>apache</i> and <i>test</i>.
-        </p>
-        <h3>Naming Context</h3>
-        <p>
-          Partitions need to know the naming context they will store entries
-          for.  This naming context is also referred to as the suffix since all
-          entries in the partition have this common suffix.  The suffix is a
-          distinguished name.  The property key for the suffix of a partition is
-          composed of the following property key base
-          <b>eve.db.partition.suffix.</b> concatenated with the id of the
-          partition: <b>eve.db.partition.suffix.</b><i>${id}</i>.
 For example
-          if the partition id is foo, then the suffix key would be,
-          <b>eve.db.partition.suffix.foo</b>.
-        </p>
-        <h3>User Defined Indices</h3>
-        <p>
-          Partitions can have indices on attributes.  Unlike OpenLDAP where you
-          can build specific types of indices, Eve indices are of a single type.
-          For each partition a key is assembled from the partition id and the
-          property key base: <b>eve.db.partition.indices.</b><i>${id}</i>.
 So
-          again for foo the key for attribute indices would be
-          <b>eve.db.partition.indices.foo</b>.  This value is a space separated
-          list of attributeType names to index.  For example the apache
-          partition has indices built on top of <b>ou</b>, <b>objectClass</b>
-          and <b>uid</b>.
-        </p>
-        <h3>Suffix Entry</h3>
-        <p>
-          When creating a context the root entry of the context corresponding
-          to the suffix of the partition must be created.  This entry is
-          composed of single-valued and multi-valued attributes.  We must
-          specify these attributes as well as their values.  To do so we again
-          use a key composed of a base, however this time we use both the id
-          of the partition and the name of the attribute:
-          <b>eve.db.partition.attributes.</b><i>${id}</i>.<i>${name}</i>.
 So
-          for partition foo and attribute bar the following key would be used:
-          <b>eve.db.partition.attributes.foo.bar</b>.    The value of the key
-          is a space separated list of values for the bar attribute.  For
-          example the apache partition's suffix has an objectClass attribute
-          and its values are set to: top domain extensibleObject.
-        </p>
-      </subsection>
-
-      <subsection name="Programatically">
-        <p>
-          This is simple create a Hashtable and stuff it with those properties.
-          But that's a real pain.  The other option is to set all the properties
-          that way minus the one for the suffix entries attributes.  We have
-          a shortcut where you can set an Attributes object within the Hashtable
-          and it will get picked up instead of using the standard property
-          scheme above.
-        </p>
-
-        <p>
-          Simply put the Attributes into the Hashtable using the following
-          key <b>eve.db.partition.attributes.</b><i>${id}</i>.  Below
we show
-          how this can be done for the same example above:
-        </p>

-
-        <p>
-          Ok that does not look any shorter.  We'll add to this in the future.
-          Perhaps we enable the use of configuration beans that can be used
-          with an SPI specific to Eve.  However this starts making your code
-          Eve specific.  You can just change properties and use the SUN provider
-          anymore to have your code be location independent.

-      <subsection name="Partition Nesting">
-        <p>
-          Today we have some limitations to the way we can partition the DIB.
-          Namely we can't have a partition within a partition and sometimes this
-          makes sense.  Eventually we intend to enable this kind of
-          functionality using a special type of nexus which is both a router
-          and a backing store for entries.  It's smart enough to know what to
-          route verses when to use its own database.  Here's a <a href=
-          "http://nagoya.apache.org/jira/browse/DIREVE-23">JIRA improvement</a>
-          specifically aimed at achieving this goal.
-        </p>
-      </subsection>
-
-      <subsection name="Partition Variety">
-        <p>
-          Obviously we want as many different kinds of partitions as possible.
-          Some really cool ideas have floated around out there for a while.
-          Here's a list of theoretically possible partition types that might
-          be useful or just cool:
-        </p>
-
-        <ul>
-          <li>
-            Partitions that use JDBC to store entries.  These would probably
-            be way too slow.  However they might be useful if some mapping
-            were to be used to represent an existing application's database
-            schema as an LDAP DIT.  This would allow us to expose any database
-            data via LDAP.
-          </li>
-
-          <li>
-            Partitions using other LDAP servers to store their entries.  Why
-            do this when introducing latency.  Perhaps you want to proxy other
-            servers or make other servers behave like Eve.
-          </li>
-
-          <li>
-            A partition that serves out the Windows registry via LDAP.  A
-            standard mechanism to map the Windows registry to an LDAP DIT is
-            pretty simple.  This would be a neat way to expose client machine
-            registry management.
-          </li>
-
-          <li>
-            A partition based on SleepyCat's JE.  I was going to try this
-            and see how it performs against JDBM.
-          </li>
-
-          <li>
-            A partition based on an in-memory BTree implementation.  This would
-            be fast and really cool for storing things like schema info.  It
-            would also be cool for staging data between memory and disk.
-          </li>
-
-          <li>
-            A partition based on Prevalyer.  This is like an in-memory partition
-            but you can save it at the end of the day.  This might be really
-            useful especially for things the system partition which almost
-            always need to be in memory.  The system partition can do this by
-            using really large caches equal to the number of entries in the
-            system partition.
-          </li>
-        </ul>
-      </subsection>
-
-      <subsection name="Partitioning entries under a single context?">
-        <p>
-          Other aspirations include entry partitioning within a container
-          context.  Imagine having 250 million entries under
-          <code>ou=citizens,dc=census,dc=gov</code>.  You don't want all 250
-          million in one partition but would like to sub partition these entries
-          under the same context based on some attribute.  Basically we will be
-          using the attribute's value to implement sub partitioning where within
-          a single context we are partitioning entries.  The value is used to
-          hash entries across buckets (the buckets are other partitions).  Yeah
-          this is a bit wild but it would be useful in several situations.
