That XML configuration file is actually a Spring Beans XML file. It just 
demonstrates how to create your StartupConfiguration instance. You can use 
the XML as you wish, but I suggest you to use your own configuration file 
format and create an instance of StartupConfiguration from it to hide 
internal ApacheDS configuration that should not be accessed by users if 
you're emedding ApacheDS.

Another topic: I asked Kirill Kovalenko (Product Manager Softerra LLC)

Could you please file this issue to JIRA so that we can track it?
