Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSTUDIO-167) Show custom icons for various kinds of schema elements while browsing schema data
Date Sat, 25 Aug 2007 07:53:30 GMT


Stefan Seelmann commented on DIRSTUDIO-167:

Currently the icons are choosen depending on the RDN attribute type (cn, ou, ...). This was
done because when expanding the tree we only fetch the DNs of the child entries, but not its
attributes and even not the objectClass attribute. The reason were performance issues and
less network traffic.

But I think in the meantime this has changed. The objectClass attribute is always returned
because we need it to see whether an entry is a subentry, alias or referral. So it should
be possible to determine the icon by objectClass. And of course a configurable and extendible
mapping between objectClasses and icons would be cool.
