Subject is a org.apache.ldap.server.configuration.Configuration required in every JNDI connection?
Date Mon, 20 Jun 2005 06:52:25 GMT
    It appears that *every* client connection via JNDI must have a 
org.apache.apache.ldap.server.configuration.Configuration object stored 
within it. In other words, whenever I want to bind against an Apache DS 
LDAP instance:

ldapContext = new InitialLdapContext( env, null );

    I will have to ensure that my env variable contains a config. object!

    I understand that the configuration object can be gained from the 
Spring context but how will a remote client access it? Surely the client 
shouldn't have to know a thing about the configuration of the server, so 
long as it fulfills the general contract of behaving as an LDAP client? 
:) If I've misunderstood something, please let me know.


P.S. From org.apache.ldap.server.jndi.AbstractContextFactory:
   public final synchronized Context getInitialContext( Hashtable env ) 
throws NamingException
        Configuration cfg = Configuration.toConfiguration( env );


    From org.apache.ldap.server.configuration.Configuration:
    public static Configuration toConfiguration( Hashtable jndiEnvironment )
        Object value = jndiEnvironment.get( JNDI_KEY );


Confluence - the enterprise wiki - tried it yet?
