Subject [jira] Updated: (DIRSERVER-833) Attribute(s)Impl usage and API
Date Mon, 31 Mar 2008 14:08:25 GMT


Alex Karasulu updated DIRSERVER-833:

    Priority: Major  (was: Critical)

Not critical.  Something which will be done automatically when the bigbang completes.

> Attribute(s)Impl usage and API
> ------------------------------
>                 Key: DIRSERVER-833
>                 URL:
>             Project: Directory ApacheDS
>          Issue Type: Task
>            Reporter: Emmanuel Lecharny
>             Fix For: 2.0.0
> We should modify the Attribute(s)Impl API and usage. Those classes should never be used
outside of the server, and we should use BasicAttribute(s) instance instead.
> When we receive a BasicAttribute(s) instance, we should convert them to an Attribute(s)Impl
before working on attributes. 
> A second point is that operations like contains(), get() or equals() must use the matchingRules
instead of doing straight comparizons of case sensitive strings.
> Last, not least, we should not use the attribute name to do operations on attributes,
but their OID. Operations like 
> "objectClass".equals( trim( attributeType.getName() ).toLowerCase )
> should not be used. It's much better to define a static final OBJECT_CLASS_OID somewhere
and do a 
> OBJECT_CLASS_OID.equals( attributeType.getOid() )
