Subject [jira] Created: (DIRSERVER-679) Tools improvement and add of Export Command and JUnit tests
Date Fri, 21 Jul 2006 13:25:15 GMT
Tools improvement and add of Export Command and JUnit tests

                 Key: DIRSERVER-679
             Project: Directory ApacheDS
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: tools
    Affects Versions: 1.0-RC3
            Reporter: Pierre-Arnaud Marcelot
            Priority: Minor

Working on a new plugin supporting LDIF Import/Export for LDAP Studio (
), I wanted to use the Apache DS to import an LDIF file.
But the Import Command can only be accessed via a Command Line and don't give enough feedback
for a front-end GUI (particularly to show the progress of the operation).

Emmanuel (L├ęcharny) also pointed out the fact that it may be interesting for future developments
to be able to access the Tools in a "kind of" Client/Server way. The tools running on a the
server's station, and the command launched from another machine.

So, he asked me to modify the tools to add this Client/Server feature and make them callable
more easily from other application and give better feedback.

I made a small documentation on this on Safehaus :
. It is also attached to this post as a PDF, since LDAPStudio's Confluence isn't accessible
to everyone.

In the patch you'll find the tools with the new architecture (defined with Emmanuel).
I also added a new command that export entries as LDIF file, and some JUnit tests for the
Import, Export and GracefulShutdown command.

Feel free to give me your feedback about this.
