Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSTUDIO-448) Apache Studio ldif export
Date Thu, 22 Jan 2009 13:17:59 GMT


Pierre-Arnaud Marcelot commented on DIRSTUDIO-448:

With Emmanuel we figured out this was a problem of indexed attributes on our testing partition.

My initial partition, where I'm getting the error does not have any index (I was tool lazy
to add some at the creation of the partition). This lack of index, particularly on the 'objectClass'
attribute makes Apache DS return the search results in an unordered way.

For the purpose of the test I created the exact same partition but added basic indices on
it, I imported the very same data and the LDIF export was correctly ordered.

Cheong Chung Onn, do you have the same thing? Did you create a new partition with an empty
list of indexed attributes?

Now, the question is: On the Studio side, Do we take for granted that search results given
from the LDAP Server are always correctly hierarchically ordered (even if no RFC clearly specify
it, just because it's the common way of returning the results), or do we add additional code
to verify and, eventually, reorder the entries when writing the LDIF export file ?

Another question: Do we need to raise a JIRA for the problem we've face with Apache DS when
a partition does not have an index on the 'objectClass' attribute ?

> I exported a branch of entries to an ldif file using Apache Studio version 1.3 and when
i tried to import the this ldif file i got numerous errors. I realized the exported ldif file
is not sorted in a parent-child entry entry sequence, hence when i re-import this ldif file
- i received errors messages that it can't find a entry.
