Hi Jeff,

Indeed, you're right. It's defined in the XSD as a String...
<!-- ***** Request ID ***** -->
<xsd:simpleType name="RequestID">
    <xsd:restriction base="xsd:string"/>

I think, at the time, I wanted to stick with the messageID policy of the LDAP Protocol specs (RFC 4511 - ) which defines it as an integer.
MessageID ::= INTEGER (0 ..  maxInt)

maxInt INTEGER ::= 2147483647 -- (2^^31 - 1) --

My bad. Sorry about that.
I think it can be easily changed though.

I am working on a SOAP implementation of a DSML gateway for ADS. So I discovered that studio has a DSML parser.
However, I have the following question:
the current DSML parser assumes RequestID should be numeric and should not be 0. I looked at the DSML v2 specs and RequestID is declared as a string extension but with no restrictions.
I did not see in the specs any comments that restricts this value to be numeric and not 0. It is means as a correlation identifier but with no specific syntax.
So my question is: does this restriction in the DSML parser comes from the fact that it has been mapped to an LDAP request ID that is numeric (I'm not sure but I guess it) ?
