Added support for configuration using resource files. See
Chapter 6 of the JNDI API document.
Added NamingEnumeration.close() for cancelling or
env) and ReferralException.retryReferral() to
allow creation and retry of referral context with different
Clarified how context methods that accept Name
argument should deal with CompositeName and
nonCompositeName arguments. Specifically, instances of
CompositeName are treated as composite name, while al
l others are treated as compound name.
Added Context.getNameInNamespace() for retrieving
the full name of a context within its own namespace.
Clarified definition of the class factory location of a
Reference object. Specifically, the location is a
codebase, which consists of a list space-separated URLs.
Added support for ordered multivalued attributes to
Attribute and BasicAttribute.
Added BasicAttributes.equals() and
Redefined semantics of
DirContext.getSchemaClassDefinition() so that it
returns a context that contains the DirContext objects
of class definitions, rather than returning one (arbitrary) class
constructors to allow lazy initialization. Useful for subclass
for transforming an object's state before the object is bound in
the naming/directory service.
Added interfaces DirObjectFactory and
DirStateFactory to better support service providers
that implement the DirContext interface. Added
DirectoryManager.getStateToStore() to use these
Refined definition of
NamingManager.getObjectInstance() to not treat URL
strings specially. Instead, the URL should be wrapped inside a
Reference whose RefAddr type is "URL".
Made ResolveResult implement
Defined a special form of Reference called a next
naming system (nns) reference for supporting "dynamic federation".
This reference has a RefAddr type of "nns" and a
content consisting of the resolved object.
Added the string constant NamingManager.CPE which
names a property set by
The value of this property is an instance of
CannotProceedException. This is useful to service
providers that implement federation by chaining the CPEs.
Defined a convention for service providers to use when naming
environment properties. See Section 6.1.
