Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-696) Adding entries with RDNs enclosed in quotes may lead to entries with illegal DNs
Date Mon, 21 Aug 2006 22:25:15 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-696?page=comments#action_12429551 ] 
            
Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRSERVER-696:
---------------------------------------------

This is really strange.
creating an entry like :
dn: ou="Scissors 8<",dc=example,dc=com
ou: "Scissors 8<"
objectclass: organizationalUnit
objectclass: top

should throw an exception.
The DN should only contains values that are declared as attributes.
ou="Scissors 8<" attribute is not the same as ou=Scissors 8<.

In DN, the  ou="Scissors 8<" RDN correspond to the attribute type and value :
ou = Scissors 8< 
where the " are removed.
if you don't create the very same attribute, then you will get an error.
It's weird that IBM and Sun create this attribute (tgis is the reason why we can see both
values in the SUN and IBM results when you do a search.

Can we have more info on the real problem in VSLDAP with this escaped values ?

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.
