public class CreateSubcontext {

     * @param args
    public static void main(String[] args)
            //use properties file to set connection
            InputStream inputStream = new FileInputStream( "");
            Properties properties = new Properties();
            properties.setProperty("", "secret");
            //create context
            DirContext ctx=new InitialDirContext(properties);
            //mould entry
            Attributes attrs=new BasicAttributes(true);
            Attribute obj=new BasicAttribute("ObjectClass", "top");
            Attribute ob = new BasicAttribute("cn", "kevin Spacey");
            Attribute ob1 = new BasicAttribute("dc", "ke");
            String rdns="uid=kevin";
            //create subcontext
