Subject [jira] Created: (DIRSERVER-1205) Remove Referral interceptor from core
Date Wed, 23 Jul 2008 14:59:31 GMT
Remove Referral interceptor from core
-------------------------------------

                 Key: DIRSERVER-1205
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-1205
             Project: Directory ApacheDS
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: core, core-integ
            Reporter: Alex Karasulu
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 1.5.4


The referral interceptor is responsible for raising exceptions based on a referral handling
parameters associated with a session or an individual request.  This is a remnant from the
days when the core and the JNDI provider code were tightly coupled.  It no longer needs to
be the case and the server's core can handle both referrals and entries in the same way leaving
it up to higher layers to decide upon policy for dealing with referrals.

The protocol-ldap provider can send back search response entry or referral PDU's based on
the ManageDSAIT control settings.  The JNDI provider wrapping the core will determine whether
an exception will be thrown or the referral will be chased etc.  Either way it's the job of
higher layers to determine which action to take.  

This is why this interceptor will be stripped out of the core.  Some core integ tests will
be moved out probably into the core-jndi module and other tests will be altered.
