Public Methods

public long __GetHandle ()

public void destroy ()

Frees the native memory of the object. This can be explicity called to control the deallocation of native memory and avoid situations where the garbage collector does not free the object in a timely manner.

public X501AttributeTypeAndValue[] getAllAttributesAndValues ()

Retrieves all of the attribute-type-to-value pairs in this distinguished name.

Returns
  • a container of X501AttributeTypeAndValue objects

public String[] getStringValuesForAttribute (ObjectIdentifier in_oid)

Returns a container full of string representations of all the values in this distinguished name that match a particular attribute's object identifier (OID). If an attribute's OID defines the corresponding value to not be of a string type, then that value will not be returned from this function.

Parameters
in_oid the object identifier representing the sought attribute.
Returns
  • a container of string values containing any strings associated with the supplied attribute

public boolean hasAttribute (ObjectIdentifier in_oid)

Returns whether this distinguished name contains a particular attribute, identified by its object identifier (OID).

Parameters
in_oid the object identifier representing the sought attribute.
Returns
  • a boolean value representing whether this distinguished name contains the supplied attribute
