Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRAPI-288:
------------------------------------------

Actually, it's no so hard to relax the filter parser, to allow white spaces. I 
have a working version of that, just have to add some extra tests before 
committing it.

> Space between LDAP filter conditions causes NPE

> Hi, When setting a filter on a request having multiple conditions, if there 
> are spaces after operators or between clauses, this causes a 
> NullPointerException. I'm not sure but I think the spec ignores this type of 
> white space. I tested the same problematic query with JNDI and it executes 
> without issue. I don't think the backend LDAP vendor matters, it seems to 
> fail in the api before the request is sent. 
> Query with no spaces between parenthetical conditions or after logical OR '|' 
> and the query executes as expected.
> (|(memberOf=cn=group1,ou=test)(memberOf=cn=group2,ou=test))
> Having a space after the logical OR operator and/or between conditions (not 
> sure which) throws NPE.
> Structure a query like this to reproduce where ^=space
> (|^(memberOf=cn=group1,ou=test)^(memberOf=cn=group2,ou=test))
> Found in api ver M32 and tested also in RC2..
