Well, I think this is not the way we should go.

Web based configuration is obviously attractive, but this is only about 
presentation. We have Apache Directory Studio which gives a much better 
UI than any web UI. What we only need is to add some HTTP connector to 
the server, and this is something we almost have, with Jetty integrated 
into ADS, with the DSML codec. Using those elements will allow us to 
have a better UI, without spending months building a specific WebApp 
with all the burden it carries (new port declaration, installing a web 
application beside the server, etc).

Also, I don't think that having a Web based configuration tool is 
opposed to have all the configuratuon stored in the DIT.

The main problem we currently have rightnow is that our configuration is 
file based, and this is the main issue, IMHO.

wdyt ?
