Subject Morning thoughts about alias handling...
Date Thu, 16 Jun 2011 09:21:55 GMT

so I slept on the problem, and here are a few thoughts I had this morning :
- first, the alias handling can't be done in the doSimpleSearch() as I 
thought, because if we do so, alias dereferencing won't be handled when 
using the coreSession. It must be handled by the EntryFilteringCursor. 
Remains to see how to implement that there.
- second, we may have some issue when an alias points to a non existing 
entry. What will the return in this case ? The alias 
exists, so the will move forward, to something that does 
not exist (this is a Pierre-Arnaud thought).
- third, we have to fix the reverter, which doe snot handle correctly 
alias removal, if the entry which is pointed doe snot exist anymore. 
There is a JIRA for that issue.

I'll do my best today to get something done.
