the attributeType in ApacheDS is not created manually rather obtained
through a lookup operation on
SchemaManager like
"objectClass" )

having said that, you can create a modification in a rather easy way
by using ClientModification and DefaultClientAttribute classes as
shown below

        EntryAttribute attribute = new DefaultClientAttribute(
"objectClass", "javaObject" );
        ClientModification cm = new ClientModification(
ModificationOperation.ADD_ATTRIBUTE, attribute );
