Subject Re: APACHE DS 1.5.5 Embedded - Updating multi values attributes with nulls
Date Fri, 18 Dec 2009 20:54:43 GMT
Hi ,

I am using the embedded APACHE DS API 1.5.5. Starting through the testng 

I am able to create partition, add users, find users, but not able to 
update users with any attribute (Single valued and Multi valued.)

Initially we thought we are not able to updated for multi values 
attributes, but we are UNABLE to update any user attribute.

 I will be opeining a JIRA issue for this.
Please advise us. ?

The syntax does not allow you to store 
null values into the entry, per RFC 4517, 3.3.6 :

"A value of the Directory String syntax is a string of **one** or more
   arbitrary characters from the Universal Character Set (UCS) [UCS].  A
   zero-length character string is not permitted.  The LDAP-specific
   encoding of a value of this syntax is the UTF-8 encoding [RFC3629] of
   the character string.  Such encodings conform to the following ABNF:

      DirectoryString = 1*UTF8

   The <UTF8> rule is defined in [RFC4512].
         This is a value of Directory String containing #!%#@.

   Servers and clients MUST be prepared to receive arbitrary UCS code
   points, including code points outside the range of printable ASCII
   and code points not presently assigned to any character.

   Attribute type definitions using the Directory String syntax should
   not restrict the format of Directory String values, e.g., by
   requiring that the character string conforms to specific patterns
   described by ABNF.  A new syntax should be defined in such cases.

   The LDAP definition for the Directory String syntax is:

      ( DESC 'Directory String' )..."

You should use another Syntax, like IA5 String 
( which allows null values.
