Subject [jira] Created: (DIRSTUDIO-161) Unable to enter Base DN ending in 'dc='

Unable to enter Base DN ending in 'dc='
---------------------------------------

                 Key: DIRSTUDIO-161
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSTUDIO-161
             Project: Directory Studio
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: studio-browser
    Affects Versions: 0.8.1
         Environment: LDAP Studio 0.8.1 on Windows XP MCE 2005
            Reporter: Andy Deckowitz


I'm trying to establish a Connection to an iPlanet LDAP server.  The Base DN for this server
is of the form 'dc=smtp,dc=company,dc=com,dc=' - note the trailing 'dc='.  This Base DN is
valid and mandatory - access to this server won't work without it.
If I attempt the 'Fetch Base DNs' function, I get a java.lang.NullPointerException error while
fetching the Base DN.
If I leave 'Get base DNs from Root DSE' set, the Connection fails to open with an error of
"Empty Value is not allowed! Can't set Base DN entry'.
If I attempt to type in the actual Base DN, I get a popup that states 'Please enter a valid
Base DN'.
If I attempt any other value for Base DN, the connection fails with a LDAP error 32 - No Such
Object.

I am able to browse the server with the Novell ldapsearch and the LDAP Browser/Editor v2.8.2,
but not with an OpenLDAP ldapsearch 2.3.30, if that helps anything.

I don't know if relaxing the Base DN validation rule on the Connection form is enough to fix
my issue as I see no way to test that scenario.  Hand-editing the connections.xml (putting
in a fake final dc=blah and then deleting the blah value from the file) does not seem to have
done the trick.
