Subject [jira] Reopened: (DIRLDAP-35) LdapName comparison must be case-insensitive for attibutType

Vincent Tence reopened DIRLDAP-35:
----------------------------------


After reading the Name RFC, I realize I got it all wrong. It's not as trivial as I thought.

> While comparing two DNs, the AttributeType of each RDN must be compared in a case-insensitive
way : RFC 2251, chap. 4.1.4, par.4.
> It could be tricky to perform a valid comparison :
> A=V1+B=V2,C=GB and A=V1+b=V2,C=GB are equals in regards with the RFC,
> A=V1+B=V2,C=GB and A=V1+C=V2,C=GB are differents in regards with the RFC.
> LdapName.compareTo function does not return a valid result :
>         Name n1 = new DnParser().parse("A=V");
>         Name n2 = new DnParser().parse("a=V");
>         int val = n1.compareTo(n2);  // val = 0xffffffe0 instead of 0
