Subject RE: NPE during directory search
Date Fri, 22 Aug 2008 07:37:35 GMT
Hi Emmanuel,

We found the problem: It was caused by a ldif file containing groups with a member attribute
with an empty string: 

dn: cn=emptyGroup,ou=users,dc=example, dc=com
objectClass: groupOfNames
objectClass: top
cn: emptyGroup

During startup, the file was loaded and the groups were created without complaining. But as
soon as ApacheDS was restarted for the first time, it started to throw the NPEs.

We have eliminated that groups now and the NPE is gone.

It seems that in the next release (1.5.4) it might be gone. I don't know 
how to reproduce this problem, I tried, but with no success ...

Do you have a test case ?
