Subject [jira] Created: (DIRSNICKERS-114) ControlType are not stored as strings
Date Wed, 23 Nov 2005 13:40:36 GMT
ControlType are not stored as strings

         Key: DIRSNICKERS-114
     Project: Directory ASN1
        Type: Bug
    Reporter: Emmanuel Lecharny
 Assigned to: Alex Karasulu 
    Priority: Blocker

Reported by Van Nhu today :

> Hi all,
> According to the RFC 2251, the "controlType" attribute
> of an LDAP Control "...MUST be a UTF-8 encoded
> dotted-decimal representation of an OBJECT IDENTIFIER
> which uniquely identifies the control". Essentially,
> this means that the "controlType" attribute is an
> OCTET STRING and should be treated as such. 
> However, the Twix ASN1 codec is treating this
> attribute as an OBJECT IDENTIFIER. This results in
> incorrect decoding/decoding of LDAP Controls.
> I suggest that we change the type of the "controlType"
> attribute of the org.apache.asn1new.ldap.pojo.Control
> class from OID to LdapString to fix the problem. A
> patch, which includes a test for exposing the problem
> and validating the fix, is attached for your
> reference.
> With Regards,
> Van
