Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-696) Adding entries with RDNs enclosed in quotes may lead to entries with illegal DNs

---------------------------------------------

Thanks Stefan,

I had time tonite in front of a beer to think again to those issues (this one and DIRSERVER-631).
I really think that the LdapDN parser need some improvment. Right now, it's a pile of two
versions, and of course it's now really intricated and complicated. Further more, it does
not deal with all the cases.

I have drafted a new version on paper, which is :
- simpler
- better
- and likely faster

I hope I will be able to implement it when I will be back, at the end of next week.

> If I try to add something like this

> ou: "Scissors 8<"
> objectclass: organizationalUnit
> objectclass: top
> an entry is created like that (quotes missing)
> dn: ou=Scissors 8<,dc=example,dc=com
> ou: Scissors 8<
> objectclass: organizationalUnit
> objectclass: top
> This causes a lot of trouble in some tools I use (LDAP Administrator, for instance).
I checked the behaviour of IBM Tivoli Directory Server 6.0 and Sun Java System Directory Server
5.2. They behave different, but both create entries with valid DNs:
> Sun:
> dn: ou="Scissors 8<",dc=example,dc=com
> ou: "Scissors 8<"
> ou: Scissors 8<
> objectClass: organizationalUnit
> objectClass: top
> IBM:
> dn: ou=Scissors 8\<,dc=example,dc=com
> ou: "Scissors 8<"
> ou: Scissors 8<
> objectclass: organizationalUnit
> objectclass: top
> I add an LDIF file with this entry and comparable entries, which cause the same error.
