I personally use a SearchOperationContext with a null core session in the PartitionsDiffComputer class (which computes the differences between two partition) in the ApacheDS v2 Configuration Editor plugin where I read the configuration partition (extracted from the LDIF files).
It works great. Without any issue.

The SchemaManager is actually tied to the Partition itself (and not the OperationContext or Session). So it should not be an issue.

Yeah this is what i saw on the code. OperationContext es are not queried for something CoreSession specific. So i believe most of the operations can work without an issue with "null" CoreSession.

As a matter of fact, I really believe that it should always be allowed to do any kind of operation with any session.
