Thanks for your response!
Under the circumstance, I am thinking that one way to go about
getting the required attribute data is to add 'accessFlag'
attribute at the required rdn. This is going to be duplicate
piece of data and any updates to 'accessFlag', would now
result in two updates. However, I will be able to save multiple
reads. In my scenario, we do lot more reads than the updates
on the 'accessFlag' field.
Is there a better way to deal with the above case?
