Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRAPI-320) ClassCastException on Objects.equals(Value,Value) for userPassword attribute
Date Thu, 13 Sep 2018 06:46:00 GMT


Pavel Zlámal commented on DIRAPI-320:

First, thank you for the updated documentation.

You are right, that schema retrieved from openLDAP is missing a lot of attributes/syntaxes.
They can be retrieved from {{cn=schema,cn=config}}, but it usually have protected access,
so on clean install only root user can locally read schema entries and then they are stored
in attributes with "olc" prefix, like "olcAttributeTypes".

I can dump such schema and manually remove olc prefix, but there is no suitable schema loader.
They either expect LDIF in your schema format (containing "m-" prefixed attributes) or take
connection and read entry by themselves. It would be nice to have constructor for {{DefaultSchemaLoader}},
where I can manually pass {{Entry}} containing necessary schema elements, since I can parse
it from file using your library manually.

Back to the {{LdapSyntax}}. I believe, such fake object can be created, but how about registering
it in registries, and what about X-NOT-HUMAN-READABLE flags? I don't see big picture, so it
will be up to your decision.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0.AM2
>            Reporter: Pavel Zlámal
>            Priority: Minor
> When I use _JarLdifSchemaLoader_ it seems to load _userPassword_ attribute type with
different Comparator than when I load it from LDAP connection (openLDAP in my case).
> Then If I call:
> {code:java}
> Objects.equals(val, attribute.get())
> {code}
> to check if value passed to my method is the first in the attribute, I get _ClassCastException_,
since it tries to pass _String_ (normalized value) to the _ByteArrayComparator._
> When I use Schema only loaded from connection, then it works, since it uses _ComparableComparator._
> {code:java}
> java.lang.ClassCastException: java.lang.String cannot be cast to [B
>     at
>     at
>     at java.util.Objects.equals(
> {code}
> So there is probably bug in schema ldif included in JAR or in equals() implementation
of Value.
