JLDAP Bug n fixes (ITS#1512)
Full_Name: Dane Foster
OS: WIN2K /Linux
Submission from: (NULL) (220.127.116.11)
- There is a NullPointerException being thrown in the copy constructor of the
- There is ClassCastException being thrown by the <code>removeValue</code>
method of <code>com.novell.ldap.LDAPAttribute</code> if you set the value of an
attribute using a byte array instead of a String.
- The <code>size</code> method of <code>com.novell.ldap.LDAPAttribute</code>
incorrectly reports the number of values for an attribute if any of the values
are <code>null</code>. This is open to debate because one may argue for or
against that <code>null</code> is a valid value. I've chosen the latter and
thus consider the behavior a bug.
- I've included a JUnit TestCase class that can reproduce the problem. Please
note, the patch that I've made is not simply fixes for the bugs but was a
rewrite of a large portion of the <code>com.novell.ldap.LDAPAttribute</code>
class. The JUnit testcase was written to ensure that my changes would not
introduce new bugs into the JLDAP API.
