Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.2 Developer's Guide

Handling Deprecation (4 to 5.2)

SLAPI_DEPRECATED has been defined in slapi-plugin.h to highlight what features have been superseded. If you cannot change core plug-in code, you might decide to recompile after including slapi-plugin-compat4.h to access deprecated features in this release.

#include "slapi-plugin-compat4.h"

In general, you must at minimum recompile your plug-ins so they work with Directory Server 5. Where possible, replace deprecated code with new alternatives before recompiling and testing.
