Subject Starting Phase III refactoring : JNDI removal from the core started
Date Thu, 01 May 2008 14:17:52 GMT
Hi guys,

the server is now using ServerEntry internally, but in order to avoid 
costly coversions from Attributes and ServerEntry, we have to remove the 
JNDI layer which is embedded into the server.

Don't be scared, it's not a complete removal, but a extraction: the 
layer will be insolated so that you will still be able to embed the 
server and use JNDI, as before.

The major gain will be that tose who don't want to use JNDI, this will 
be possible to address the server though a brand new dedicated API. The 
standalone server will also use this brand new API (which still has to 
be defined).

This phase will start with the creatin of a core-jndi subproject, which 
will be the one users will call if they want to use JNDI (the associated 
code is mainly in core atm). protocol-ldap will depends directly on 
core, without passing through core-jndi.

Everything will be done in the bigbang branch, so don't be scared !

Thanks for your attention

cordialement, regards,
Emmanuel L├ęcharny
