Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-679) Tools improvement and add of Export Command and JUnit tests
Date Fri, 21 Jul 2006 13:52:14 GMT

Ersin Er commented on DIRSERVER-679:

This patch, although a nice contribution, may need some reviewing. Here are a few points:

* The paths it updates are not relative to our repository but local file system.
* There are some lines prefixed with - (minus) which means they are to be excluded, but they
do not even exist in the current code base.
* Although it is targeted at 1.0-RC3, it has some Stored Procedure related stuff.

Well, I may not be %100 correct about my concerns but a review would be good.

Thanks Pierre!

> 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.
