Netscape SDK: Adding an entry with two description attributes does not combine values.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

         Key: DIRSERVER-643
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-643
     Project: Directory ApacheDS
        Type: Bug

    Versions: 1.0-RC3    
 Environment: ApacheDS 1.0 RC 3
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_04-b05)
Microsoft Windows XP version 5.1 Service Pack 1
    Reporter: Stefan Zoerner


Here is a strange behavior, which I am only able to demonstrate with Netscape LDAP SDK for
Java (or compatible APIs like Sun or Mozilla). I create an LDAPEntry with two separate LDAPAttribute
objects for two description values in the LDAPAttributeSet. 

...
LDAPAttributeSet attrs = new LDAPAttributeSet();
LDAPAttribute ocls = new LDAPAttribute("objectclass", new String[] { "top", "person" });
attrs.add(ocls);
attrs.add(new LDAPAttribute("sn", "Bush"));
attrs.add(new LDAPAttribute("cn", "Kate Bush"));
        
String descr[] = {
   "a British singer-songwriter with an expressive four-octave voice",
   "one of the most influential female artists of the twentieth century" };
        
attrs.add(new LDAPAttribute("description", descr[0]));
attrs.add(new LDAPAttribute("description", descr[1]));
...

After creation, the outcome is an entry within ApacheDS with only one of the description values:


dn: cn=Kate Bush,dc=example,dc=com
objectclass: top
objectclass: person
cn: Kate Bush
sn: Bush
description: one of the most influential female artists of the twentieth century

I attach the complete code as a JUnit test case. The code (and the test case) works with other
LDAP servers (Sun Java System Directory Server 5.2 for instance) as expected (entry with two
description values).

I was not able to create a comparable problem with an add operation with JNDI. I assume that
the corresponding BasicAttributes class within JNDI and its LDAP provider combines/consolidates
the attributes on its own, which results in one attribute with two values.
