Subject Re: migratiting to ApacheDS

Hi Juergen,

yes I had the same problem, or a similar one, that I needed an  
objectclass that is no longer available. What I did is, that I, as  
Alex or Stefan or Emmanuel told me, used an LDAP schema that is more  
compliant to the standards.

Had also the problem that I needed the attribute cn, which I used from  
objectclass container. I uses corbaContainer for that, the first time,  
now I use organizationalRole which is even better.

In ApacheDS 1.5 corbaContainer is no longer available.
