We need to support DSA referrals
--------------------------------

                 Key: DIRSERVER-1497
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-1497
             Project: Directory ApacheDS
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 1.5.7
            Reporter: Emmanuel Lecharny
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 2.0.0-RC1


Atm, we just support 'smart' referrals (ie, referrals handled in entries), we don't support
DSA referrals (or suffix referrals).

This is a must have : we should be able to redirect all request to another server if the requested
DN does not exist in the local DIT, or we should be able to do the same thing if the current
server is in maintenance mode.

This kind of referral must be configured globally, and handled globally. We can add a referral
with each suffix, plus a global one. 

For instance, a global referral can be set this way :


  <defaultDirectoryService id="directoryService" instanceId="default"
                           referral="ldap://remote.server:389"
                           referralActivated="false"
                           ...

so that if we change the flag to TRUE, any request will be redirected to the remote server.

For the suffix referral, we can do that :

      <jdbmPartition id="example" 
                                 suffix="dc=example,dc=com"
                                 referral="ldap://example.com:489"...>

then any request done on dc=example,dc=com will be redirected on the example.com server.
