Subject [jira] Created: (DIRSERVER-805) Supporting Unicode chars above 0xFFFF
Date Mon, 25 Dec 2006 15:04:21 GMT
Supporting Unicode chars above 0xFFFF

                 Key: DIRSERVER-805
             Project: Directory ApacheDS
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Emmanuel Lecharny
            Priority: Minor

The current implementation and handling of LdapStrings does not support characttres which
are above unicode 0xFFFF. Even if Strings are translated to UTF-8 before being transfered
to the server, we still convert them back to String inside the server. Some of those UTF-8
bytes may be encoded into 2 chars (if the UTF-8 bytes sequence contains 4 to 6 bytes), but
all the manipulations of those Stri,g does not take into account such characters.

For instance, the DN parsing is based on single chars, and surrogates are not handled at all.

Even if not really important, because extended chars are not very common, this is something
that should be fixed in 2.0
