Subject [Shared] Relaxing the schema parsers
Date Tue, 27 May 2008 21:36:00 GMT
Hi dev,

We are using the shared-ldap schema parser now in the LDAP Browser
plugin of Studio.

Some LDAP servers however have a schema that isn't valid according to
RFC's (for example the Netscape successors are using "nsFooBar-oid" as
OID for some  attributeTypes and objectClasses). This causes problems
when loading the schema from such servers as the schema parser is quite

I would like to add a flag to the schema parser to make the parser
strict or more relaxed, depending on the usage. The default behaviour
should be unchanged of course, we need a strict parser in the server and
in the schema editor.

Kind Regards,
