Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRLDAP-87) Incorrect SearchResult name and "compare" failure using CoreContextFactory
Date Mon, 30 Jan 2006 16:52:34 GMT

Luke Taylor commented on DIRLDAP-87:

Hi Emmanuel,

Thanks for the response. My understanding of isRelative() is that it should return true unless
the name in the result is from a referral and is a full URL, otherwise it
should be relative to the "target context" (the context the search is performed in). There
is some info on this in the Java tutorial:

Though that may not be correct :).

In any case, the behaviour doesn't appear to be consistent. If I modify the test to use

        if(searchResult.isRelative()) {
            if(searchBase.length() > 0) {


The isRelative() method returns "true". In this case the name should be relative to "ou=people,dc=acegisecurity,dc=org",
since I'm passing "ou=people" to the search method. However the name of the search result
is "uid=bob,ou=people,dc=acegisecurity,dc=org".

> Attached is a test case following on from my post a while back to the mailing list, viz:
> My setup is like this:
> I have a simple DIT with a root "dc=acegisecurity,dc=org". This has two subcontexts "ou=people"
and "ou=groups" for my users and roles respectively. When the test base class instantiated,
I create a
> MutableStartupConfiguration and add a partition to it with the suffix "dc=acegisecurity,dc=org".
I then create a context with this configuration as follows:
>     env.setProperty( Context.PROVIDER_URL, "dc=acegisecurity,dc=org" );
>     env.setProperty( Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY,
>              CoreContextFactory.class.getName());
>     env.putAll( cfg.toJndiEnvironment() );
>     serverContext = new InitialDirContext( env );
> When I need a context in my tests it is created the same way.
> Bind authentication works fine in both scenarios. I have problems with two things when
trying to use CoreContextFactory :
> 1. The name returned by a search. When I do a search for a user in the directory, I get
back the full DN rather than the name relative to the context I search in. So if I call
>"ou=people", "(uid={0})", new String[] {"bob"}, ctls);
> on a context obtained as above, I get back a SearchResult with name
> "uid=bob,ou=people,dc=acegisecurity,dc=org"
> whereas with the full server (or OpenLDAP) I get
> "uid=bob"
> as expected. This then unfortunately leads to an attempt to bind with an an unknown DN
which causes the infinite recursion problem.
> 2. Performing "compare" operations. I had problems with this before, as reported in
> but this now works with the full server, thanks to Emmanuel's speedy response. Running
the same search code against a context obtained from CoreContextFactory fails however. A compare
is never performed and the search returns an empty enumeration. Is there some way I can get
my client code (as posted in JIRA):
>      SearchControls ctls = new SearchControls();
>      ctls.setReturningAttributes(new String[0]);
>      ctls.setSearchScope(SearchControls.OBJECT_SCOPE);
>      String filter = "(userPassword={0})";
>      NamingEnumeration results =, filter, new
>            Object[]{password.getBytes()}, ctls);
> to trigger a compare call on the context? The compare/search also fails for non-binary
