Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSTUDIO-807) How to support Dot character in attribute name

Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRSTUDIO-807:
---------------------------------------------

Hi,

if underscore was allowed in an attributeType name in 1.5.x, it must have been a bug. In any
case, it's not anymore the case. I'd like some evidence that we ever accepted underscores
in AttributeType names, though...

In the mean time, *none* of the standard AD AttributeTypes, I mean, *none*, contain either
an underscore, a dot, or a space  (see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms675090%28v%3dVS.85%29.aspx).
The fact that your users have created some new AttributeTypes with non-compliant names just
demonstrates how badly LDAP compliant can be AD.

Now, if you try to find another LDAP server support those forbidden chars in AttributeNames,
I wish you a good luck. 

<rant>
In any case, we won't impair our code to support something that Microsoft has deliberately
made incompatible with the LDAP specification. Microsoft users have to pay twice for their
choice :
- the first time by paying an insane amount of money for their software
- the second time when they run away from Microsoft products just because they are not good
enough and have to transform their data to get back in a world of compatibility and open standards.
</rants>
