Description

17 years ago
I've been playing with DSMLWriter.java, and it's reasonably buggy :-) It uses 
the wrong tags for objectclasses in entries, some of the attributes lose their 
closing quote mark, and so on. It also doesn't support writing all the tags 
necessary to make proper DSML (particularly the <directory-entries> tags.)

I fixed all of that, and made enhancements to LDAPWriter.java, the base class, 
to support the fixes. I've attached a ZIP of both of my modified files, seeing 
as a diff would be a reasonably complex thing, you may want to take only a 
subset of the changes, and so on. 

I don't personally need this fixed - I'm just giving it to you in the hope that 
it's useful :-) I assume you might want it fixed...

Er... hello? Is there any possibility of getting this patch checked in? It's now
more than _six_ months old, and it's not as if the relevant files are under
active development.

The DSMLWriter.java in the tree does not work, even vaguely, and has not since
it was originally checked in in 1999. It uses the wrong tags in several places,
for a start.

No, Erhyuan Tsai does.  Let me find out what his current bugzilla ID is (I could
not find him using the "take a guess and use a partial match" approach; he is
another ex-Netscape person).
