abstract fun partiesFromName(query: String, exactMatch: Boolean): Set<Party>

Returns a list of candidate matches for a given string, with optional fuzzy(ish) matching. Fuzzy matching may get smarter with time e.g. to correct spelling errors, so you should not hard-code indexes into the results but rather show them via a user interface and let the user pick the one they wanted.


query - The string to check against the X.500 name components

exactMatch - If true, a case sensitive match is done against each component of each X.500 name.
