Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSTUDIO-915) Attribute values of syntac (binary) are displayed inconsistently
Date Fri, 14 Jun 2013 12:55:20 GMT


Pierre-Arnaud Marcelot commented on DIRSTUDIO-915:

Hi Lothar,

I did a few other tests on my colleague's Edirectory (a 8.8 SP6 version) and still haven't
been able to reproduce the issue (even with the inetOrgPerson thing).

I had a look in the code and I can now explain why sometimes it would write "NULL". That's
because the received value is a "null" java object. But I still don't understand why this
object would be null since a value is showing in Gawor LDAP Browser/Editor.

In the end, we get three different displays for attributes that all share the same "Binary"
- the default display "Binary data (xxx bytes)", which is what is expected since the attribute
is binary.
- the "NULL" display which is due to the fact that the editor receives a "null" java object,
which is very weird.
- the "complete string" display, that displays the text contained in the attribute, which
shouldn't happen since the attribute is "Binary". That part is really really weird.

Is there any way I could access the machine to debug the issue? (I imagine it's complicated)

In any case, here are a few other steps you could do to help me find out what is going on:

1°/ Could you verify in the schema browser that all the DirXML-xxxxxxx attribute types are
present and their syntax is "Binary" ?

2°/ Could you deactivate the "decorated values" ( It's in the "triangle icon" at the top
right of the editor, then uncheck "Show Decorated Values") and make me a screenshot of then
editor ?

3°/ Just in case, restore the Binary Attributes default preferences in the corresponding
preference page, "Apache Directory Studio" > "LDAP Browser" > "Attributes" > "Binary
Attributes" and see if it changes anything.

> Attribute values of binary syntax OID are displayed inconsistently
and partly wrong. Those attributes contain base 64 encoded text and some of them are displayed
> - editable (inline + dialog) text
> - "Binary Data (xxx Bytes)"
> - NULL
> See attached screenshot for an example of Apache DS vs. Gawor LDAP Browser/Editor displayoing
the same object.
