Date Wed, 30 Nov 2005 11:12:33 GMT

Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRLDAP-75:

Thanks for the report !

You have to know that Twix is not already official (you can use it, but it's still beta) and
that Snickers is the 'legacy' codec. Snacc will be 'terminated' soon.

so, on your points :

1) yes, this is a good idea.

2) ok, that's also a good idea

3) bloody hell ! a NPE... I have to double check the problem. I think that the init is not

4) oopps. I commented this one for testing purpose, but I forgot to implemented it after having
tested the code... My very bad !

Thanks to you Van !

>          Key: DIRLDAP-75
>          URL:
>      Project: Directory LDAP
>         Type: Bug

> Please excuse my limited understanding of the LDAP Common source base, but it seems that
the support for LDAP controls in the TwixTransformer is not complete. So I've made the following
modifications to the LDAP Common module in order to have my Virtual Directory to correctly
process the various LDAP controls:
> 1. Get the Twix Control class to implement the javax.naming.ldap.Control interface. Firstly,
this is because Twix Controls are really LDAP Controls, and secondly, this makes it easier
to create an org.apache.ldap.common.message.ControlImpl instance from a Twix Control object.
> 2. Remove the extraneous method declarations in org.apache.ldap.common.message.Control
because they are already defined in javax.naming.ldap.Control
> 3. Fix a NullPointerException in org.apache.asn1new.ldap.pojo.LdapMessage.addControl()
> 4. Implement the method org.apache.asn1new.ldap.TwixTransformer.transformControls() so
that the Response Controls are propagated to the LDAP client properly.
> The patch and the unit tests will be attached here shortly for your reference.
> Thanks and Regards,
> Van
