Subject [ApacheDS 1.5.0 + DirStudio] Search result differs between Uppercase and Lowercase Searchstring
Date Mon, 23 Jul 2007 16:28:34 GMT
Hi List-users,

following problem I see during my tests with ApacheDS. Would like to 
know if someone of you do know what the problem is... any hint or tip is 
really appreciated.

If my webapp tries to get the roles which contain a given user 
"p.groesche" as a uniqueMember, I do get a resultset of zero when the 
search string is like this:

If I modify the search string so that it looks like this
I do get a result set of one.

I am able to reproduce this behaviour thru Directory Studio searches.

Can anybody explain this behaviour to me? I would really like to know 
what the problem is, 'cause I thought ApacheDS is case-insensitive.

The following is the system I used for my tests.

Markus Pohle

System: CentOS 4.3
ADS: ApacheDS 1.5.0 installed by rpm under /usr/local/apache-1.5.0
Java Version: 1.5.0_10

Defined a partition called DouglasHolding with the following base 

Within this structure I created the following objects:

dn: uid=p.groesche,cn=users,dc=VERWALTUNG,dc=DOUGLASHOLDING
objectClass: organizationalPerson
objectClass: person
objectClass: inetOrgPerson
objectClass: top
cn: Groesche, Peter
givenname: Peter
sn: Groesche
uid: p.groesche
userpassword:: c3RhcnQ=

dn: uid=p.groesche,cn=users,cn=cas,dc=APPLICATIONS,dc=DOUGLASHOLDING
objectClass: uidObject
objectClass: alias
objectClass: top
aliasedobjectname: uid=p.groesche,cn=users,dc=VERWALTUNG,dc=DOUGLASHOLDING
uid: p.groesche

dn: cn=Admin,cn=rollen,cn=cas,dc=APPLICATIONS,dc=DOUGLASHOLDING
