Subject Re: [ApcaheDS] How to import schema without using LDAP Studio
Date Thu, 03 May 2007 18:41:54 GMT
Thanks for the reponse and I appreciate the help.

My application runs on multiple platforms, but windows is a limiting factor
with respect to the escaping issue.

I figured out what my issue was with trying to use JNDI. I was using the
InitialContext with PROVIDER_URL set to the dn "uid=admin,ou=system" to make
the getSchema call. This initial context was created to kick start the
directory in an embedded manner and when using this you get
UnsupportedOperationException when trying to get the schema context. I found
if I created a new InitialContext using a typical ldap url (ldap://...) I
could get the Schema context so I should be able to use JNDI to add my
custom schema. I would much rather use the ldif approach if that gets fixed.
:-)

I was also wondering if there is a maven repsoitory I could point to to get
the 1.5.1-SNAPSHOT artifacts as opposed to having to build it myself?

Thanks again for the help.
