    SQL-based implementation for NXDirectory

  <extension target=""

  <extension-point name="directories">
      This extension point can be used to register new SQL-based
      directories. The extension can contain any number of directories
      declarations of the form:
        <directory name="userDirectory">
            <tableReference field="groups" directory="groupDirectory"
                table="user2group" sourceColumn="userId"
                targetColumn="groupId" schema="user2group"

      Here is the description for each field:
          schema - the name of the schema to be used for the directory
          dataSource - the dataSource name, as registered in the
          application server.
          table - The name of the sql table where the directory data
          will be stored.
          idField - the id field designs the primary key in the table,
          used for retrieving entries by id.
          passwordField - the password field.
          passwordHashAlgorithm - the hash used to encode the password
          written in the database, either empty (default), SSHA or SMD5.
          autoincrementIdField - if this is set true, the SQLDirectory
          will fill the id field using a generated unique number,
          otherwise the client has to supply the id.
          dataFile - file from which to populate the table; the
          first line must contain the column names. This can be a csv, tsv, psv file.
          But you must take care of the dataFileCharacterSeparator to specify the character
          dataFileCharacterSeparator - character that separate each value
          if more than one character is set, the first one is gotten and other
          are skipped. The character is by default "," but you can set ";" or tabulation
          createTablePolicy - one of "never", "always" or
          "on_missing_columns" if this is set to "never", the table will
          never be created; if set to "always", the table will be
          created each time the application is started; if set to
          "on_missing_columns", the table will be created only if the
          schema declares some fields that are not present in the sql
          querySizeLimit - the maximum number of results that the
          queries on this directory should return; if there are more
          results than this, an exception will be raised.
          init-dependencies - a list of directories that should be
          initialized before this one
          nativeCase - false if table and column names should be used exactly
          as specificed in the configuration and schemas (quoted), true if
          they should be converted to database-native case (usually
          uppercase); the default is false for backward-compatibility.
      The references tag is used to define relations between
      directories. (TODO: describe the references types.)
