Subject ServerEntry serialization issues
Date Tue, 15 Jan 2008 16:32:27 GMT

while dealing with some tricky serialization code, I faced some little 
problem... We currently can only serialize a straight ServerEntry 
without its reference to the registries, but then when we need to 
deserialize the ServerEntry, we will have to add those registries after 
the entry has been read from disk (or memory).

This is a little bit cumbersome, as it forces the developper to remember 
to do so, otherwise, he won't be able to modify the entry.

Another problem I'm facing is that Mitosis currently use Entry to 
communicate between two servers. For the same obvious reason, there is 
no mean to save the registries in the serialazed form of the 
ServerEntry, so I'm just wondering if we should not simply use the LDIF 
Entry structure to exchange entries ?

Right now, I will translate ServerEntry to Attributes and back, until we 
have a clear vision of what we need to do.

wdyt ? Any other better idea to solve these problems ?
