Stefan Zoerner updated DIRSERVER-803:


Test case to demonstrate DIRSERVER-803. Uses JNDI and its LDAP provider to connect to ApacheDS
and perform the two add operations described in the original issue description.

> It fails to import the following two entries into ApacheDS 1.0 (default server.xml).

> The second entry is an alias to the first one, and is directly located below the first

> It seems that ApacheDS does not allow to create an alias from a descendant. I tried the
same with Tivoli Directory Server 6.0 and Sun Java System Directory Server 5.2, both allowed
this constellation.
> Find attached a JNDI JUnit test which is able to cause the error by adding two entries
