Subject [jira] Created: (DIRSERVER-870) Simplify the password cache mechanism
Date Fri, 09 Mar 2007 14:18:24 GMT
Simplify the password cache mechanism

                 Key: DIRSERVER-870
             Project: Directory ApacheDS
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Emmanuel Lecharny
            Priority: Minor

We have at least two level of caches for user passwrds :
- one is managed into the Authenticator
- and we may also have a cache associated with the userPassword attributeTypes (if declared
in the configuration)

We could keep only one cache by simply removing the weak cache from the authenticator (this
cache cannot be resized, its size is staically fixed to 1000 passwords).

The main problem with this cache is that we have to update it when a user modify his password,
when the standard cache is automatically updated. And from a philosophical point of view,
doing the same thing at two different places is somehow a waste of time and error prone ...
