Yes. The Javadoc should be more explicit that the (currently) blank
pages. (

Every thing.

There is only one thing we don't support yet, which is Referral handling
on  the client side. More specifically, we don't chase referrals
automatically, but you can do it manually.

A DN is a list of RDN; You can get the left most RDN by doing
Dn.getRdn(). Dn being immutable, you will have to construct a new Dn
where the parent Rdn contains your own attribute and value, and append
the Dn.getParent() part (ie, the Dn without the left most Rdn).

Hope it helps.
