Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSTUDIO-486) Include Version Specifier in LDIF export
Date Sat, 25 Apr 2009 09:52:30 GMT


Stefan Seelmann commented on DIRSTUDIO-486:

Hi Jürgen,

you are totally right, the version spec is required at the beginning of an LDIF file, so it
should always be added.

What I meant with "no sense" was the following:
- If you right-click on an entry and select Advanced->Copy Entry as LDIF only one LDIF
record is copied. I use this quite often to extract some sample data from a directory to an
LDIF file. I copy one entry and paste it into an LDIF file, then the second and the third
and so on. In that case I don't want the version spec on top of each LDIF record.
- The modification logs is a rolling log file. On each modification another LDIF fragment
is added to the log. So I think in that case it makes no sense to add the version spec in
front of each LDIF fragment.

So IMHO the version spec should be added when producing complete LDIF files, but not for LDIF

> E.g. the Novell LDAP classes for Java will not accept an LDIF that does not contain the
Version Specifier.
