Subject [jira] Created: (DIRSERVER-874) Entries should be normalized in the NormalizationService
Date Mon, 19 Mar 2007 23:19:32 GMT
Entries should be normalized in the NormalizationService
--------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: DIRSERVER-874
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-874
             Project: Directory ApacheDS
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Emmanuel Lecharny


ATM, we normalize entries (ie, attributes and values) far into the server, in different places.
This lead to complicated code, and duplication of operations. We can be sure that we have
bugs or at least, bugs will appears as soon as more users will try to store elements which
are not exactly what we expected them to be.

The Normalization Service should normalize the attributes, as it does for the DN, to avoid
such problems. Attributes normalization consist of :
- replacing the attributeType by its OID
- applying the normalizer on each values
- removing duplicated values in an entry (for instance, it is possible to store two phone
number, like 012345 and 01-23-45 are the same number)

We should also normalize add, remove and modify operations in the same way, normalizing ModifcationItems

These modifications are not exactly simple nor fast to implement, but it's mandatory and will
help implementing new features in the near future.
