Subject [PATCH] JNDIRealm documentation
Date Thu, 21 Mar 2002 22:57:52 GMT
I've attached updates for the realm configuration and howto docs to cover 
recent changes in the JNDIRealm. The patch for the config doc is a bit 
different from the one I submitted on Sunday, so please ignore the earlier 
version. The howto changes are quite extensive, but I thought it worth 
going into some detail to explain how the directory realm works and maybe 
anticipate questions that are likely to come up.

Craig, would you look them over and submit if OK.

By the way I don't know whether the plan would be to include the new realm 
in a 4.0 release or wait until 4.1. It should be entirely backwards 
compatible, and I've tested it lightly with
4.0.2, but obviously it's adding new features rather than fixing bugs.

Thanks, John.
