Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-939) Implement RFC 4529
Date Tue, 22 May 2007 23:04:16 GMT


Alex Karasulu commented on DIRSERVER-939:

This is an extremely interesting feature for LDAP.  I say this because as you know entries
can have any number of AUXILIARY objectClasses and these different objectClasses are a different
aspect or view of the entry.  By requesting a specific set of attributes based on the objectClass
client code for marshalling objects for a specific interface is simplified.  I can see several
use cases for this.  However I do think this is a nice to have feature rather than a critical

+1 to add it and adding it should not at all be that difficult considering how well isolated
the code is for returning various attributes.  I suspect there is a request control in here
that is involved with the search request to modify the returned set of attributes.

into the list of returned attributes, then all the objectClass attributes are to be returned.
