Sure ! The starting point is a class named But as we are 
using Spring, if you want to step in the real server, the entry point is 
the DirectoryService class (assuming you don't want to deal with the 
network layer).

In any case, if you want to know what's going on when the server receive 
a request, the best is to start the server with UberMain.class, put 
breakpoint in the handlers, which can be found in the 
apacheds-protocol-ldap project, for instance for any Search request, in 
class, more specifically on the handle( LdapSession session, T req ) method.

As this can be a bit complex, you can also put a breakput a bit lower in 
the chain, like in the class (you will find 
all the kind of requests the server can deal with).

Hope it helps.

PS : You will have to build the server using mvn eclipse:eclipse in 
order to have everything setup correctly...
