Subject [jira] Created: (DIRSTUDIO-410) Referral handling is problematic
Date Thu, 02 Oct 2008 12:25:46 GMT
Referral handling is problematic

                 Key: DIRSTUDIO-410
             Project: Directory Studio
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.2.0
            Reporter: Emmanuel Lecharny
            Priority: Critical

The way referrals are handled in the server is problematic. 

There is a mix between JNDI and plain LDAP (ManageDsaIT control usage). 

Beside the fact that one should be able to select the way referral should be handled on each
request (it's painful to have to disconnect when you change the global property), for people
used to deal with JNDI, the 'manage' option does not make sense.More than that, 'manage' defaults
to 'ignore' (which is plain OK, so far), but the 'ignore' option is not activated.

I would suggest that we switch to 'ignore', 'throw' and 'follow' instead of 'follow', 'ignore'
and 'manage'
