Re: Are you going to create a Mac OS version of Designer?


It appears the bug is turning into a forum. I thought I'd synopsize what
is being said over in the bug, here, so perhaps we can get some of the
unofficial Novell folks to answer the question...

What is Designer doing on NCP that cannot be done via LDAP?

You may not want to split the discussion. The developers on the bug
aren't necessarily going to see anything posted here in the forums.

AFAIK, the non replicating attributes are the only thing that couldn't be
done via LDAP. And even those might be possible, if LDAP connections
directly to the server work, I haven't tried it myself to find out.

Is anybody paying attention to the bug? It has been open for over 2
years now.

I thought of something else that may not be supported via LDAP. How are
Named Passwords handled?

Well, the CC list keeps growing.

I have no idea. Good question.

Re: Are you going to create a Mac OS version of Designer?

Named password can be managed via LDAP by using the java classes
available in the dirxml_misc.jar file.

Personally I think that the focus should be on fixing the performance
and usability issues that Designer has first, instead of wasting time on
making a slow mac version.

You're assuming that both can't be done at the same time... They could
have one guy working on a jclient/mac port while another guy works on the
memory leaks and performance.

I would love to be proven wrong and I hope that they have more than one
guy working on performance!

Re: Are you going to create a Mac OS version of Designer?

I would say that they have guys/gals working on Designer. They have a
list of stuff to do, and performance is always something to look at in
spare time, or in relation to what they are doing.

I do not think there is any one dedicated just to performance work.
Alas. I wish there was. 🙂

I know there was someone (as 4.0 released) on the engine/User App side
so dedicated, but no clue if that is true for Designer.

I think the only thing which cannot be done with LDAP is the trace
feature, which in my humble opinion isn't really that great in the first
place.
