It is very uncommon to search entries with a specific uid and password, 
because the password will in almost all cases not be readable.

Normally, you search an entry with a uid, and bind with the returned DN 
and the given password.

Note that a bind in JNDI is not a bind in LDAP. The bind in JNDI is an 
add in LDAP (just to reduce confusion).
