Subject [jira] Created: (DIREVE-243) Compare operation does not adhere to some matching rules
Date Mon, 05 Sep 2005 12:32:30 GMT
Compare operation does not adhere to some matching rules

         Key: DIREVE-243
     Project: Directory Server
        Type: Bug
    Versions: 0.9.2    
    Reporter: Stefan Zoerner
 Assigned to: Alex Karasulu 
    Priority: Minor

The compare operation provides wrong results for some matching rules. I made tests with four
rules, two of them worked, two of them not. 

caseIgnoreMatch failed (compare("Amos", "AMOS") => false)
telephoneNumberMatch failed
octetStringMatch worked
distinguishedNameMatch worked

A corresponding test case with all four cases is included to this issue. 

I changed the CompareHandler in org.apache.ldap.server.protocol to use the comparator from
the AttributeTypeRegistry instead of Attribute.contains(...). This removed the problem, but
I am unsure, whether this implementation is desired by design. Especially in case of multivalued
attributes, the implementation is not optimal (e.g. many member values in a groupOfUniqueNames),
because it seems to be necessary to loop over the attr values by the handler.
