    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRAPI-298?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16379103#comment-16379103

Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRAPI-298:
------------------------------------------

The {{bindSaslPlain()}} method has been added.

>                 Key: DIRAPI-298
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRAPI-298
>             Project: Directory Client API
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>            Reporter: Emmanuel Lecharny
>            Priority: Major

> We do have the following bind methods in {{LdapConnection}} :
> * {{void anonymousBind()}}
> * {{void bind()}}
> * {{void bind( String name )}}
> * {{void bind( String name, String credentials )}}
> * {{void bind( Dn name )}}
> * {{void bind( Dn name, String credentials )}}
> * {{BindResponse bind( BindRequest bindRequest )}}
> That does not cover any of the SASL binds.
> However, in the {{LdapNetworkConnection}}/{{AbstractLdapConnection}} implementation,
we have the following SASL bind mehods :
> * {{void bind()}}
> * {{void bind( String name )}} (abstract)
> * {{void bind( String name, String credentials )}} (abstract)
> * {{void bind( Dn name )}} (abstract)
> * {{void bind( Dn name, String credentials )}} (abstract)
> * {{void anonymousBind()}}
> * {{BindResponse bind( BindRequest bindRequest )}}
> * {{BindResponse bind( SaslCramMd5Request request )}}
> * {{BindResponse bind( SaslDigestMd5Request request )}}
> * {{BindResponse bind( SaslGssApiRequest request )}}
> As we can see, we have dedicated methods for some of the SASL binds, but the SASL PLAIN
([https://docs.ldap.com/specs/rfc4616.txt]) and SASL ANONYMOUS ([https://docs.ldap.com/specs/rfc4616.txt])
are not present. 
> The {{bindSaslPlain}} method is commented in the interface.
> At this point, we probably have to implement the missing PLAIN and ANONYMOUS SASL bind
methods, expose them in the interface, and probably add a {{bindSasl( SaslRequest )}} method
to cover all our bases
