Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRLDAP-43) Refactor Attributes implementations
Date Wed, 26 Oct 2005 21:07:56 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRLDAP-43?page=comments#action_12356012 ] 

Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRLDAP-43:
------------------------------------------

The specific LockableAttributeImpl class muts be refactored in two directions :
- as Alex said, 'Lockability' is useless. 
- much more important, the class *must* be aware of it's attribute type. A user could perfectly
store a String or a byte array in an attribute, depending on the attribute type being binary
or not. Actually, it is supposed to be a String, and this is not the best option. We should
accept byte[].

The following transformation table should be applied :

    Attribute's type  client type server type
       String                   String        String
       String                   byte[]         String
       OctetString          String         byte[]
       OctetString          byte[]         byte[]
       whatever             XXX           error    where XXX is not String or Byte

due to historical reason.  Let's review and replace them with BasicAttributes if necessary.
