> 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
