design issue...

Hi everybody,

I need to store some objects in an LDAP server. Each object is called a
'resource' and it has an unlimited number of attributes, meaning that these
attributes are not known when designing the data model of the ldap server.
The attributes come in name/value pairs, similar to a hashtable (e.g.
name=XXX, value=YYY; name=ZZZ, value=...). Multiple applications use the
LDAP server for publishing/searching resources, each one may have different

Is there any way to define a schema that accepts an object class having an
unlimited number of attributes (sort of runtime attributes)? Is this
possible in an LDAP server? Are there any other approaches that should be
considered when implementing this issue?

Thanks for your time,
