Subject Bind Request processing
Date Tue, 23 Feb 2010 09:55:11 GMT
Hi guys,

as I'm writing thorough tests for the BindRequest operation using the 
new LDAP API, I'm also reviewing the way ADS handle this operation. I 
already found some issues, and I'm sure there are more.

I have one question regarding BindOperation done while we have some 
other operations being processed: what should we do ? RFC 4511 says 
(4.2.1) :

"Before processing a BindRequest, all uncompleted operations MUST either 
complete or be abandoned".

What do we want to implement ? Complete current operations or abandon 
all of them?

IMO, I would rather adopt strategy #2 (abandon all) as we may have a 
PersistentSearch running, and it can't be completed. Also is simpler to 
implement, as we have a list of all the pending operations.

wdyt ?
