Subject [Shared] [LDAP] [Schema] Discussion on IRC regarding schema OSGi conclusions
Date Fri, 11 Mar 2011 11:06:59 GMT
Hi all,

For a fast discussion some points were discussed regarding creating OSGi
bundles specifically for loading schemas. The end result was the realization
that this was a moot point because of the following:

(1) Any bundle has the capability to load its own schema at any point by
interfacing with the SchemaManager and other schema subsystem elements so
OSGi bundles designed to specifically load schemas are unnecessary.

(2) The synchronization problem of having class loadable elements stored in
the DIT correspond with the loaded elements from OSGi bundles is not worth
the hassle of dealing with OSGi bundles for schema only. The DIT sync up of
schema and OSGi bundle contained elements is unnecesary.

(3) Keeping schema in the DIT is good because of 3 points instead of pushing
contents to OSGi bundles:

      (a) replication of schema is easier when stored in the DIT
      (b) remote management of schema via the LDAP protocol is easier than
having to manage and deploy OSGi bundles
      (c) creating, deploying and management of schemas should not involve
OSGi knowledge
