Subject Re: How do I disable schema checking?
Date Thu, 15 Nov 2007 17:11:16 GMT

Also note that the attribute types must be defined in the schema. 
Removing the schema service will not help in this case as the partition
code relies on registered attribute types.

I have removed the schema service in my own project so it should be
do-able, but I have also removed other services and added a lot of other
hacks like a "loose" partition that doesn't care if the attribute types
are not registered.

This is a good question ... What the SchemaService does is that it 
checks the ObjectClasses hierarchy, the AttributeTypes hierarchy, the 
missing MUST attributes. It also add some missing OC like 'top', or any

super-OC if they are missing, and check for AT which are not in the
and MAY lists.

So I _think_ that removing this interceptor should not have negative 
impact if you only insert AT which are not in MAY or MUST. Otherwise, 
you may get some bad NPE...
