This is great. Perhaps you attach this to a JIRA instead? Also make sure denote this as an ASL licensed contribution on JIRA. I'll try to get to this soon. I'm going to have to figure out what you need to do to setup. Like you had some free edition of Oracle u used for this. Please ignore this if you have a readme inside.
I finally finished to clean up dependencies, setup maven, and use the lastest interfaces (basically reimplented the partition).
I think there are a lot of things that can be improved i hope also by others, but this should be a solid proof of concept.
The partition actually does not cache entries in ApacheDS waiting for a cross partition cache at an higher level.
I hope Stefan can test it someday with his automated tests, probably there is the need to fix some use case.
