This is really interesting!

Please note that the described example is just a case study on how 
simple it is to embed ApacheDS. One option to mitigate this misbehavior 
would be to simply not start the network protocol, and interact with 
ApacheDS solely in process like the RootDseServlet in the example does.

But for the sake of an impressive example, I would opt on opening the 
network port ;-)

My favorite integration option for Tomcat would be a ApacheDSRealm 
anyway (Realm implementation with embedded ApacheDS), which uses an 
embedded ApacheDS for authentication/authorization. But this is another 
story (maybe later this year ...).
