Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSTUDIO-356) Add a way to get the connection config as an URL
Date Mon, 25 Aug 2008 21:13:44 GMT


Stefan Seelmann commented on DIRSTUDIO-356:

Added a first implementation here:

I have the following problem, not sure if this must be handled in my code or if there are
encoding issues in the LdapURL class or if an LDAP URL doesn't support non-ASCII characters.
When my connection name has non-ASCII characters (e.g. Ä alias %C4 (ULR encoded) alias C384
(UTF-8 encoded))  then the extension part of the resulting URL string contains these non-ASCII
characters. When parsing this string back to an LdapURL it just contains an '?'. Has anyone
an hint how to handle it?

Here is some test code:

    public void testNonAscii() throws Exception
        String A_uml = new String( new byte[] { (byte)0xC3, (byte)0x84 }, "UTF-8" );
        LdapURL url1 = new LdapURL();
        url1.setHost( "localhost" );
        url1.setPort( 389 );
        url1.setDn( LdapDN.EMPTY_LDAPDN );
        url1.getExtensions().put( "X-CONNECTION-NAME", A_uml );
        LdapURL url2 = new LdapURL("ldap://localhost:389/????X-CONNECTION-NAME=" + A_uml);
        LdapURL url3 = new LdapURL("ldap://localhost:389/????X-CONNECTION-NAME=%C4");

you can copy and paste so that it makes it easy to share a connection config with omeone else
simply by pasting the URL in a mail/IM/whatever.
> For instance, 
> LDAP://<connection-name>@<ldap server host>:<port>/security=TLS?bindDN=uid=admin,ou=system?...(other
> The URL syntax has to be defined, of course
