Subject [jira] Created: (DIRSERVER-1322) Auto inferring context entry
Date Wed, 04 Mar 2009 16:17:58 GMT
Auto inferring context entry

                 Key: DIRSERVER-1322
             Project: Directory ApacheDS
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: core
    Affects Versions: 1.5.4
            Reporter: Alex Karasulu

We've just removed the configuration in the server.xml for specifying the context entry (CE)
for a partition.  There were issues with implementing this with XBean - it was very messy
too.  Instead we now defer creation of the context entry until after the server is started.
 So the partition is created and present yet it does not have the context entry which makes
it not seen even though the entry is listed in the RootDSE under the namingContexts attribute.

It's disappointing to fire up the server and notice your namingContext is missing for a new
partition you added.  The first thing the user feels is that there's something wrong with
the way they configured their partition.

Rather than omit the CE, I suggest we have the partition infer a context entry based on the
namingContext DN's RDN attribute.  Partitions should be able to accept a CE in which case
the inference process is bypassed.  If omitted though the CE is inferred.  Some examples:

For o=apache:

dn: o=apache
objectClass: top
objectClass: organization
objectClass: extensibleObject
o: apache

For dc=apache,dc=org

dn: dc=apache,dc=org
objectClass: top
objectClass: domain
objectClass: extensibleObject
dc: apache
