Abstract

The directory services described herein provide facilities to generate unique or nonunique object names, and to create, locate and maintain these objects in a distributed data environment. This environment is independent of network topology or the underlying transport mechanisms. QUERY PROCESSING CASES Query Processing at Origin Directory Service Unit (No propagation) The processing for the case where the origin Directory Service Unit (DSU) can satisfy the query request from the local directory includes the following steps: 1. The application program calls the Application Interface (API) Query_Send Processor to pass the QUERY verb. 2. The API_Query_Send validates its syntax and parameters. The API_Query_Send calls the Directory Service Interface (DSI)_Query_RQ processor to pass the query request for processing. 3.
