We are using Internet2 GroupStore and I noticed somme small problems in
the class GrouperEntityGroupStore.

In the method : EntityIdentifier[] searchForEntities(String query, int
method, Class type)

The method parameter is not used. This is a problem for a channel
which uses this method whith the parameter IGroupConstants.IS because several
can be returned while a single one is expected.
I changed the instruction :
WsGetSubjectsResults wsGetSubjectsResults = new

whith :

GcGetSubjects gcGetSubject = new GcGetSubjects();
if (IGroupConstants.IS == method) {
WsSubjectLookup subjectLookup = new WsSubjectLookup();
} else {
WsGetSubjectsResults wsGetSubjectsResults = gcGetSubject.execute();

I added this test to avoid null pointer exception (like it is in the method
searchForGroups) :
if (wsGetSubjectsResults != null && wsGetSubjectsResults.getWsSubjects() !=
null) {
for (WsSubject wsSubject : wsGetSubjectsResults.getWsSubjects()) {

I used the IPerson.class instead of EntityTypes.LEAF_ENTITY_TYPE in the
results :
EntityIdentifier entityIdentifier = new EntityIdentifier( wsSubject.getId(),
"g:gsa".equals(wsSubject.getSourceId()) ? EntityTypes.GROUP_ENTITY_TYPE :

I had to do that because this class determines in uPortal how the name
of the entity is retrieved, and nothing was displayed in the uPortal's
groups manager when searching for a person.

I hope this will help,
Best regards,
Arnaud Deman.
