As the vote for the release of Apache DS 1.5.3 is now a question of hours, I think we can cancel this one and postpone it when Apache DS 1.5.3 will be released.

I think it makes sense that Apache Directory Studio is released with the latest version of Apache DS available (for running the server inside the Apache DS plugin and editing the server configuration in the Apache DS Configuration plugin). I think it's worth waiting a few more days...

I can work on integrating Apache DS 1.5.3 (or at least 1.5.3-SNAPSHOT version) in Studio while Apache DS 1.5.3 release vote is on. As soon as it's out, I'll be able to commit the changes and start the vote again.

This is a workaround. Is there a way to define an editor which can
handle something like a BigDecimal instead of an integer, of course in a

What we could to is to remove the "Spinner" widget and instead add a
simple text field and add a validator that validates the value using
 new BigInteger(text);
and in case of a NumberFormatException we reject the value.
As said Pierre-Arnaud, as soon as the user is aware that there is a workaround, no need to replace a pretty cool widget by a less optimal one.

However as discussed in DIRSTUDIO-234 we should consider if all those
smart features help or just handicap the users...
Right now, I think they help the user, aren't they ? And the fact that you still can use the text editor anyway is a good enough workaround, unless we really want to spend a week writing a widget handling BigInteger :)
Thanks Stefan !
