Structure of Activity Calendar does not match with COSEM BlueBook 12Th edition

I am using org.gurux:gurux.dlms:2.2.24 and I found that calendar_name_passive/calendar_name_active(gurux.dlms.objects.GXDLMSActivityCalendar) has not the same format than my COSEM Blue Book 12Th edition.

In the COSEM Blue Book 12th edition I have this format :

calendar_name_active ::= octet-string
calendar_name_passive ::= octet-string

In the java class GXDLMSActivityCalendar I have this format :
calendar_name_active ::= visible-string
calendar_name_passive ::= visible-string

This can lead to encoding problem in java if calendar_name has some bytes that are not printable characters

Hi,

It's send and received as octet-string, but it's visualized to string. Reason for this is that byte array was causing a lot of problems for our clients. They did not know how to show byte array and all the clients are using ASCII string here at the moment.

If you are planning to use non-ASCII string we can add getCalendarNameActiveAsOctetString and setCalendarNameActiveAsOctetString methods.

BR,

Mikko
