Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (DIREVE-230) Deletion of RDN and objectClass attribute
Date Tue, 23 Aug 2005 17:49:55 GMT
Hi Alex!

I didn't want to propel you to do things, that are scheduled for later 
implementation. But schema validation would definitly be my number one 
wish (and probably the number one of many end users wishlists ...). So I 
would appreciate schema checks.

I will add appropriate tests to the test suite (some are already in 
place, one of them raised this defect).

Question for the central strategy / overall solution / architecture ...:
Have you planned to allow the administrator to disable the validation 
during maintenance times, e.g. for a faster bul load?
Some servers allows this and have different strategies for 
implementation ...

checked to make sure a modify operation left a valid structural objectClass in place after
all mods are applied then we would not have this problem.  Likewise we should not allow the
deletion of the RDN attributes without an RDN change.  Overall schema checking is a mess we
really need a central strategy behind it.  For now I will add schema checks to make sure these
consistency issues do not arrise.
