Authentication with LDAP using Java(URGENT)

I am running java application in Win2k advanced server which has LDAP in built. In my application, we have to login and whatever username & password(username and password is always of LDAP) we enter, we have to do authentication with LDAP using Context and DirContext api of java. We used Context, SECURITY_AUTHENTICATION with simple value. Now let's say I have user Administrator and password is admin. Now in my login page if I enter ADMINISTRATOR, still it's authenticate successfully. I don't want to allow this. I want to allow case sensitive only. How can I do that?
