Hi Mark,

I think this has been fixed in 1.0.2 (not released yet, but will be 
soon). BasicAttributesImpl is case insensitive because attributeTypes 
are case insensitive. We have had a lot of problems with 
BasicAttributes, because if you forget to set it to case insensitive, 
you may have some very tricky bugs if you use uppercased names. As a ule 
of thumb, you should always use AttributesImpl inside the server.

It's not so minor ! Thanks to raise this point, I think we should add 
some clear warnings about them, because they are thise little things 
that make you lose a *lot* of time :)

Oh, man, we *are* interested ! There is not so much difference between 
1.0 and 1.5 when it comes to partition, and trust me, we are very 
interested in spendning some time porting a in-memory partition to 1.5! 
So feel free to push it to us :) We are also interested by any kind of 
profiling sessions results.

Thanks a lot for using ADS ! What you did with the partition is 
something we didn't had time to do, and we are really interested to 
expose such a piece of work to the community.
We are also very eager to grow our little project and community, so if 
you feel like participate to it, this will be a pleasure for us !
