Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRLDAP-25) Ldif files must begin with "version: 1"
Date Mon, 14 Feb 2005 18:13:13 GMT

karan singh malhi commented on DIRLDAP-25:

I think the version number is optional. look at the text below, i have taken it straight out
of the RFC, it clearly states that if the version number is missing, then implementation has
an option to treat it as an older format
1)  For the LDIF format described in this document, the version
          number MUST be "1". If the version number is absent,
          implementations MAY choose to interpret the contents as an
          older LDIF file format, supported by the University of
          Michigan ldap-3.3 implementation [8].

> RFC 2849 states that a ldif file must start with the 'version: 1' string. LdifParserImpl
does accept files that don't respect this rule.
> It was marked Trivial as this is really not an issue : Microsoft(TM) ldifde.exe tool
accept those kind of files (even worse : it does NOT accept files with a 'version: 1' string
...). I think that it should be an option, but at least, it should verify that the version
number is '1', if present ! (p.5, par.1) 
> BTW, RFC2849 is not very clear on this subject, and could be interpreted as "If <version-spec>
is absent, ..." instead of "If version number is absent..."
