Subject [jira] Created: (DIRSERVER-1247) removing unrequired escaping in DNs / filters
Date Wed, 10 Sep 2008 02:01:44 GMT
removing unrequired escaping in DNs / filters
---------------------------------------------

                 Key: DIRSERVER-1247
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-1247
             Project: Directory ApacheDS
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: ldap
    Affects Versions: 1.5.4
            Reporter: Norval Hope


The current Dn and filter handling is overly restrictive in that all non-ascii characters
are quoted using the \NN syntax. This is probably due to rfc 2253 being unclear about the
fact that multibyte UTF-8 encoded values can be used, but this iss further clarified in rfc
4514 which superceeds 2253. The application of unrequired quoting makes debugging / reading
logs much harder then it should be, as it requires manual calculations rather then just setting
the file encoding on your log file / IDE windows to being UTF-8.

I have attached a patch file with the required updates to code and unit tests under /shared/ldap
(some problems i had noted with earlier AD version due to unspecified encoding when converting
bytes to / from Strings had already been tidied up in AD 1.5.4).
