a simpler question.
if i authenticate by getting an InitialDirContext with a user as principal,
how can i use the context to pull this users attributes?
Context.getAttributes() expects a Name, confused...

Subject: first small ldap java design


Im new to LDAP Java and need to provide code for the following usecase.

Wondering if anyone might review my initial logic notes writen in novice terms

perhaps offer some advice, pseudo or even real LDAP Java code examples.

taking first baby steps...

Thks, Lee!

1- connect to the customer's LDAP Directory service


   get a new InitialDirContext() with customer's LDAP Directory service

   hostname:port, Bind principal and Bind principal password

   ? supply base DN ?


2- authenticate simple mode LDAP username/password credentials


   uid = username,  userpassword = password

   ? user password stored in UNIX crypt format ?

   Bind ?

   Search user uid, userpassword?


3- if authenticated, retrieve membership of 3 possible role groups,

   and the personname attribute value


  Search and return attributes ?


4- Close the LDAP service connection
