Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSTUDIO-123) Refactor IConnection interface and Connection class
Date Fri, 08 Jun 2007 16:50:26 GMT


Christine Koppelt commented on DIRSTUDIO-123:

As Stefan and Enrique offered their help i would like to start implementing the SASL authentication
after the
refactoring has been finished.

> Refactor IConnection interface and Connection class
> ---------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: DIRSTUDIO-123
>                 URL:
>             Project: Directory Studio
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: studio-browser
>    Affects Versions: 0.8.0
>            Reporter: Stefan Seelmann
>            Priority: Critical
> The IConnection interface and the Connection class (and its dependent classes) needs
to be refactored:
> - They are just too big: The IConnection interface defines 65 methods, the Connection
class has more than 1000 LOC and no line of Javadoc :-(
> - The procedure of opening a connection (connect, bind, load RootDSE, cache/refresh schema,
load base entries) is just horrible
> - The Connection class uses LDIF as an interface between the browser classes and the
JNDI layer to retrieve information from the directory or to commit modifications. This causes
heavy CPU consumption and slows down mass operations.
> - In order to support new features lik strong authentication with SASL, extended operations
and controls we also have to extend the IConnection interface.
> I will create an confluence page that shows the current design. It would be cool if we
could discuss the needed requirements and improve the design.
