I have completed a set of changes which addresses the induced problem in Asn1CollectionType.
I have also made changes to the tests where the test was dependent on the incorrect behavior
of this class. I have all tests passing now.

Gerard should be able to post an additional patch with these changes today.

Thanks Richard for digging into the deep!

If the test failure is the only issue incurred by the desired change, we can fix the test
anyway. But I’m afraid the impact may be more than that. I remembered I had considered to
change the behavior, but due to some impacts I leave it as it was.

When the patch can compile and have the basic issues resolved, I would look at the change
and see how to fix the failure.

PersonnelRecordTest is indeed failing due to changes in in the patch.
Unfortunately we can't simply roll back the changes because the changes were made to address
a problem with the decoding logic which resulted in adding default or empty values to the
decoded object when fields were missing in the encoded data stream. This is incorrect behavior.
Additional changes will be necessary to this class to correct the induced problem.

Jiajia Li commented on DIRKRB-542:

[~gg], thanks for your contribution, I think it will be new achievement for Kerby.
Some issues:
1. After applying the patch to trunk, with some tests failure(PersonnelRecordTest, SignedDataTest...)
2. Compilation failure(
3. The patch reformatted some original code, then some lines are longer than 80 characters(ps:
Each line should not exceed 80)
4. A lot of " @SuppressWarnings("unchecked")" were added in the patch, I think some of them
can be removed.

> Kerby lacks Authorization classes.  Authorization types from RFC 1510, 4120, 4537, 4556,
6711 and 7751 will greatly enhance the usability of Kerby.
