> If one tries to add an attribute to an entry, and does not provide a value, it is assumed
that the server does not modify the entry. We have a situation here using Sun ONE Directory
SDK  for Java (or Netscape, now Mozilla SDK, http://www.mozilla.org/directory/), where adding
a description attribute without value to a person entry like this
> dn: cn=Kate Bush,dc=example,dc=com
> objectclass: person
> objectclass: top
> sn: Bush
> cn: Kate Bush
> does not fail (modify call does not result in an exception). Instead, a description attribute
is created within the entry. At least the new attribute is readable with Netscape SDK (it
is not visible to most UIs, because it is invalid ...).
> Attached you find a test case which demonstrates the problem. It passes with Sun Java
System Directory Server 5.2, for instance. Unfortunately, I was not able to create this situation
with JNDI, because its LDAP Provider does not allow this (illegal) operation -- it throws
an exception on the client side and does not seem to call the server at all.
