Subject [jira] Commented: (DIREVE-253) escaping problem with custom partition search results
Date Fri, 23 Sep 2005 08:17:29 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIREVE-253?page=comments#action_12330261 ] 

Alex Karasulu commented on DIREVE-253:
--------------------------------------

This is really odd because ldapsearch (openLDAP command line tool) returns the correct result:

=================================
mac:~/Projects/apache/directory/apacheds/trunk akarasulu$ ldapsearch -h localhost -p 20391
-s one -b 'dc=dummy' -x -w secret -D 'uid=admin,ou=system'
# extended LDIF
#
# LDAPv3
# base <dc=dummy> with scope one
# filter: (objectclass=*)
# requesting: ALL
#

# test space
dn: cn=test space

# search result
search: 2
result: 0 Success
matchedDN: dc=dummy

# numResponses: 2
# numEntries: 1
=============================================

JXPlorer on the otherhand does not.  It handles the DN replacing the space with a  '%20'.
 Just in case I went through all the code to see the encoding of the result was done properly.
 It all looked just right.  I don't know what could be making JXPlorer treat this differently.
 Just in case I will try another GUI based browser.

> I have observed a strange problem in implementing a custom partition that proxies to
another remote LDAP server: the results of search() operations have blanks replaced with "%20"
so that JXplorer is unable to explore them. The temporary solution I have in place is to wrap
the original search results returned by the remote server using the following class:

> so it seems whatever is doing the escaping leaves results with full DNs alone (note that
just setting sr.setRelative(false) has no effect by itself). I'm not familiar enough with
the DS architecture yet to work out where the escaping is occurring and hence come up with
a better fix.
