Subject [jira] Closed: (DIREVE-294) Search filters with wrong case in attribute names lead to wrong result
Date Wed, 26 Oct 2005 09:41:55 GMT
     [ ]
Stefan Zoerner closed DIREVE-294:

I have rebuilt the server and retested this one with a new test case in the test suite here:
and with Softerra LDAP Administrator (defect was first observed there) as well.
It works as expected now. 

I use the Softerra tool, which uses the "(Objectclass=*)" filter for expanding the tree as
I learned yesterday, daily with our server. I would have noticed it immediately if the defect
has been present before the latest bug fixing changes.

Anyway, thanks for fixing it at once, Alex! Our Softerra users would have hated us for the
0.9.3 release with this defect. It was not possible to browse the directory tree at all.

Now me exploring Apache Directory Server with this GUI client happy again close this issue.

> Search filters which use attribute names with "wrong" case cause the search operation
to return nothing. Example:
> $ ldapsearch -D "uid=admin,ou=system" -w ***** -p 10389 -b "dc=apache,dc=org" -s base
> (nothing)
> $
> But the following still works as expected:
> $ ldapsearch -D "uid=admin,ou=system" -w secret -p 10389 -b "dc=apache,dc=org" -s base
> dc=apache,dc=org
> dc=apache
> objectClass=extensibleObject
> objectClass=domain
> objectClass=top
> I assume the error is due to changes in class NormalizationService (package org.apache.ldap.server.normalization)
done to fix DIREVE-274, because if "wrong" attributes are used, this interceptor raises WARN
messages like 
> [23:37:27] WARN [org.apache.ldap.server.normalization.NormalizationService] - undefined
filter based on undefined attributeType 'Objectclass' not evaluated at all.  Returning empty
> which explains the behavior above. 
> Btw.: The behavior causes Softerra LDAP Administrator 3.2.1 to fail during the exploration
of entries. This is how I found it.
