Is there any examples in the book using Java with LDAP?

Thanks for the welcome. Hope that I can provide some useful insight in this forum.
As for the book, the first part deals with LDAP concepts, the second part deals with integration (mostly with Perl examples for doing things like moving tabular data into LDAP, etc...), and the final part uses the Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI) to show how to LDAP-enable a Java applicationt to use directories. It also spends some time with DSML, which is an XML standard related to LDAP.
So the short answer is that yes, it does have Java examples.
