Subject: general question : why keeping it so hard ?
This mail is a thought about LDAP.
As databases went simpler and simpler over the past years, Ldap is still
as complicated to use as X500.
You all know what I'm talking about : Schema.
As long as you use normal schema, there are no problem. But if you want
to do something special...
Moreover, Schema are not compatible between different ldap servers
This question arize : What can be done to use LDAP without having to
deal with Schema ?
Of course, a good product, implementation dependant, could deals with
Schema for you. Some kind of Schema constructor. I haven't found
anything interesting yet :(
I think Schema is THE thing that disable Ldap to be used at it's best.
Even if LDAP V3 add some functionalities, it's still hard to use.
I would really like to know what other people on this mailing list think.
Maybe we are at the begining of a new LDAP_without_schema tool ?
