Subject RE: Embedding ApacheDS using DirectoryServiceBean etc
Date Mon, 23 May 2011 10:39:17 GMT
I agree, the LDIF configuration is great.  The reason for persisting with the XML approach
is that I need to do Spring like property substation to set ports, etc, as in:

   <property name="transports">
        <bean class=""
...   p:port="${apacheds.ldapport}" 

For a fully embedded server, dynamic configuration changes do not seem so important.

There is a reason for such a (painful) switch : having a LDIF backed 
configuration (Here, I should say a DIT based) allows us to dynamically 
reconfigure the server, without having to stop and restart it. This is 
incredibly useful.
