Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0 Developer's Guide


An opaque structure representing information such as attribute type, current BER-encoded request and parameter block context for attributes that are computed.


#include "slapi-plugin.h"
typedef struct _computed_attr_context computed_attr_context;


Before the server sends an entry to a client application, it determines whether any of the attributes are computed. If so, it generates those attributes and includes them in the entry.

As part of this process, the server creates a computed_attr_context structure to pass relevant information to functions generating the attribute values.
