Table 1: Order of O/R Address Directory Components

1 The O/R Address Hierarchy

An O/R Address hierarchy is represented in the X.500 directory by

associating directory name components with O/R Address components.

An example of this is given in Figure 1. The object classes and

attributes required to support this representation are defined in

Figure 2. The schema, which defines the hierarchy in which these

objects are represented in the directory information tree is

specified in Table 1. A given object class defined in the table will

always be higher in the DIT than an object class defined lower down

the table. Valid combinations of O/R Address components are defined

in X.400.
