if we want to make the search operation part of the transaction, then we may need to move the Txnmanager to the shared-ldap library, as we don't see this class from any cursor.

I see what you mean. But there are ways in which we can decouple things without having to have TxnManager moved. This can be done by registering for Cursor close notification and there the transaction manager can be called within an Observer type object.

First of all I was wondering if we can use the Java Transaction API here at all to prevent re-inventing these interfaces. Have not looked at the overlap.
The need is to be able to commit or rollback the txn when the cursor.close() is done (or if we've got an exception).

Again I think we can decouple this with notifications/callbacks.
