This site was updated for ApacheDS 1.5.5.
So you found a bug in ApacheDS. Don't worry this is a good thing! We can fix it really fast but need your help. There are different degrees to your ability to help out. Some of you have developer skills so you might be able to write a test case that pin points that bug. If you can do this we will prioritize your bug report above all others. Yes we will put your bug to the top most important fixes that should be fixed first. But if you can't do this and your bug is serious then we're prioritize it ahead of others anyway.
This wiki page shows you how you can help us to help you!!!
We've created a simple archetype for you to rapidly create a Maven project that fires up ApacheDS in embedded mode within a JUnit testcase. This test case will start up ApacheDS as a server on any available port above 1024 on your machine. You can then use JNDI or the Netscape LDAP API (more APIs to come) going over the wire on that port above 1024. You can also use the ApacheDS core API to access the data directly.
So you can write client code in your test case immediately. Just add your code, tar gzip the project, and attach it to your JIRA issue on the ApacheDS JIRA here:
We'll prioritize your bug higher than others and probably fix it rapidly because the problem is isolated thanks to your testcase submission. We will in fact strip out your testcase and add it to our suite of test cases to make sure ApacheDS always passes this integration test you've provided.
To use the archetype you'll need to check it out and install it. Here's how you can do that for the leading edge of 1.5.5:
This will install the archetype onto your local repository. Now you can invoke the archetype.
Once you checkout the archetype plugin and install it you can use it like so to generate a foo-test project:
This will generate the default test case project with the following tree structure:
Once you do this you can cd into foo-test and just build and test it for fun to see what happens. This will build, and test the sample test cases (they should pass) that comes packaged with the project you just created. CD into foo-test and run the following command:
Now you can customize the MinimalTest.java or AdvancedTest.java file to isolate your bug. Open the classes with your favorite editor and goto town. However if you want to pull this project into your IDE and edit it there you can use Maven's IDEA, Eclipse and Netbeans integration to create IDE project descriptors for them. Then you can import this project into your IDE. Here's how:
Note that this archetype is specific for ApacheDS 1.5.5.
