<br>
At this end of this week will make a checkout of the project in my Eclipse Workspace
and go deep into the structure of existing plugins. I think to make a simple
prototype of screens. I am planning on doing a mechanism for setting the screen
based on XML file, mapping the attributes independently of the schema used. So
would simply integrate with others LDAP servers, and mainly, with the Apache DS.<o:p></o:p></span></font></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><font size=3 face="Times New Roman"><span lang=EN-US
style='font-size:12.0pt'>I am excited with the idea of contributing. I produce
a plugin (without LDAP) for management of proxy rules for the Squid which could
also be part of the project (or the idea).<br>
<br>
I do not want to replace the Webmin (like Emmanuel say), but the Apache DS can beat
others tools and grow very fast at the server configuration side with this enhancements.<br>

<br>
This is a great news.<br>
<br>
We are really open to any kind of contribution to the&nbsp; Studio (and the
Server too!).<br>
<br>
Your idea seems interesting and I think it may find its place in the Studio.<br>
Although it would be great if you could elaborate a little more on it, so we
can think about if and how we could integrate it in existing plugins.<br>
<br>
Thanks for your proposal. ;)<br>
<br>
Looking forward to read more about it.<br>

Hi Davi !<o:p></o:p></span></font></p>

<div>

<p class=MsoNormal><font size=3 face="Times New Roman"><span style='font-size:
12.0pt'>&gt; I have developed some Eclipse plugins for Linux administration.
So, now<br>
&gt; I have a bit experience in Eclipse Plugins.<br>
&gt;<o:p></o:p></span></font></p>

</div>

<p class=MsoNormal><font size=3 face="Times New Roman"><span style='font-size:
12.0pt'>That's great... Seems to be a growing community.<o:p></o:p></span></font></p>

<div>

<p class=MsoNormal><font size=3 face="Times New Roman"><span style='font-size:
12.0pt'>&gt; Today I need more complete solutions for directory services (like<br>
&gt; Microsoft Active Directory with snap-ins for user account and site<br>
&gt; administration), and I found a solid framework for this: - The DS<br>
&gt; Studio.<br>
&gt;<o:p></o:p></span></font></p>

</div>

<p class=MsoNormal><font size=3 face="Times New Roman"><span style='font-size:
12.0pt'>Cool :)<o:p></o:p></span></font></p>

<div>

<p class=MsoNormal><font size=3 face="Times New Roman"><span style='font-size:
12.0pt'>&gt; I would like to contribute with Apache DS Studio, helping to
building<br>
&gt; plugins for user account administration and custom configuration. I<br>
&gt; Think that the DS Studio is schema centric application (my opinion), and<br>
&gt; if we have more specific GUIs for administrators, we can provided a<br>
&gt; unique system that all LDAP server need.<br>
&gt;<o:p></o:p></span></font></p>

</div>

<p class=MsoNormal><font size=3 face="Times New Roman"><span style='font-size:
12.0pt'>I would say that Directory Studio is much more LDAP centric than Schema<br>
centric, but it has been built in a way that it can be extended. Thanks<br>
to Eclipse, creating new plugins is just easy. You can even redesign the<br>
full GUI just keeping the internal plugins if you want to.<br>
<br>
We see Studio as a platform which is LDAP enabled. You have specific<br>
LDAP plugins (like the connection plugin, LdifEditor plugin, etc), but<br>
you simply can add some more using those existing common plugins.<o:p></o:p></span></font></p>

<div>

<p class=MsoNormal><font size=3 face="Times New Roman"><span style='font-size:
12.0pt'>&gt; Please, if anyone can tell me what you think about this idea, drop
me<br>
&gt; some words.<br>
&gt;<o:p></o:p></span></font></p>

</div>

<p class=MsoNormal style='margin-bottom:12.0pt'><font size=3
face="Times New Roman"><span style='font-size:12.0pt'>This is just a great
idea. Apache Directory Studio can become a kind of<br>
WebMin, may be with a restricted set of functionnalities, of course !<br>
<br>
Now, we need to see the code ;)<br>
<br>
Thanks !<br>
