I'm a sysadmin and I manage ldap servers for a college. I've just installed apache directory studio and so far I'm happy with the change from jxplorer. One thing I noticed right away is that by default it will submit changes automatically after I click off an attribute. This behavior can be changed by unchecking the box in preferences -> ldap browser -> entry editors -> table entry editor -> Save modifications automatically in single-tab editor. I feel it would be best practice by default to NOT automatically submit the modification.
