Thanks for your Help Alex.

Yes there is one unit test, but that in for encoding and decoding of data.

As you say, I can see the code and am trying to glue it together like a 1000 piece puzzle :-)


cheers,
Anna

There is I think one unit test case you can look at although it does not
help answer these questions.  Sorry there's very little there that can
help with figuring out how to configure the DNS server.  I don't know
just how much the DNS server has actually been rigged into ApacheDS in
the trunks.  I know it's not at all in 1.0.  The code is there but the
plumbing is not in place.

I already emailed Enrique and I've IM'd him directly regarding
responding to you.  I wish I could help you out more but I'm just as
versed as you are in this particular area of the code base: that is not
at all.  Perhaps he will get to this email now that I have CC'd him
directly on it.

Please bear with us.  I'm sure he's just busy at the moment.

Alex
