      Description

      OPENDJ-7457 adds service discovery support to the DS LDAP SDK, which will make it much easier to configure the DS connection parameters in client applications. At the moment client applications are required to enumerate all of the DS servers in a topology, along with the load-balancing parameters, while paying particular attention to ordering, especially where affinity and fail-over are concerned.

      With service discovery client applications only need to identify a couple of "bootstrap" DS servers, which are contacted during startup in order to discover the remainder of the topology. After that, the mechanism periodically probes the topology for changes. The service discovery mechanism will automatically determine the best load-balancing parameters.

      The tasks required in order to support service discovery are expected to comprise of:

      • changes to rest2ldap's configuration model and samples
      • changes to rest2ldap's internal use of the LDAP SDK in order to use service discovery
      • documentation changes
