Subject [jira] Created: (XBEAN-125) getNameInNamespace() is wrong
Date Thu, 02 Apr 2009 17:40:13 GMT
getNameInNamespace() is wrong

                 Key: XBEAN-125
             Project: XBean
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: naming
    Affects Versions: 3.5
            Reporter: David Jencks

NameInNamespace handling seems to be completely wrong.  After a lot of poking around I found
out from the jndi tutorial book p. 339 discussion of fully qualified names that getNameInNamespace
is supposed to be the complete hierachical name in the namespace.  Currently it is the name
in which a subcontext is bound into its parent.  Previously I've been confused about what
a "namespace" is.... on p.13 its defined to be the set of all names in a naming system.  This
appears to mean the names starting at a root context, not at a subcontext.

A related problem is that the nameInNamespace is stripped off a lookup in AbstractContext:

        if (stringName.startsWith(nameInNamespace)) {
            stringName = stringName.substring(nameInNamespace.length());

I'm not sure what should be happening here if anything but the result of the current code
is that if you create subcontexts to bind

the two "b" subcontexts end up being the same object and the second bind attempt fails.
