RE: (ITS#3541) ResultSet getString(int i)

Your answer certainly agrees with my observations.

However, I was under the impression that the SQL standard did specify
the order of return when the programmer specified explicit columns in
the select statement (did not use something like the * notation).

As least this is the way I have seen every SQL vendor I ever dealt with
before (Oracle, Informix, Sybase). Anc certainly the order of results
did not change between rows of the result set :-(

IMHO, this is probably not an openLDAP slapd issue, rather it is a
surprising feature of the JDBC-LDAP Bridge Driver (JDBC-LDAP) by

It is unclear what client software is being used; it seems o be
unrelated to OpenLDAP software.  In any case, OpenLDAP's slapd returns
the attributes in an implementation dependent order that may be totally
unrelated to the order they are requested; there is no indication in the
specs as per what order attributes must be returned.
