I finally committed the new parser. I did my best to have the same API,
so ou can use it as if it were the previous version, except that it does
not use AntLR anymore.
The final performance results :
new parser, core schema parsed 100 000 times : 31s
old parser, core schema parsed 10 000 times : 100s
ratio : 32 times faster (it's a bit slower than what I said in my
previous mails, but I have added various checks that slow down the
parser - mainly checks on OID validity -.
Radovan, you are free to check with your various LDAP server if the code
is ok for you, and if not, I'm ready to fix it.
Side notes :
- I'm now using static methods for the various schema parsers, so there
is no synchronization anymore
- I found *many* errors in the previous implementation...
- the Strict mode is not as strict as it could be : we typically accept
OID macros (that allows us to have things like "attributeType (
MyRootOid:2.3.4 ...)" to be used, where 'MyRootOid' is defined using a
ObjectIdentifier element. This is ultra convenientt, and does not put us
- The code has been pushed in the API 2.0 branch.
I haven't yet tested Studio with this new code, this is soemthing I'll
Hope you'll find that convenient !
