I'm writing application to connect to server and retrieve employee information(I haven't even got to that part), i try to connect by doing:-
Hashtable environment = new Hashtable();
InitialDirContext root = new InitialDirContext(environment); //exception is thrown here"Connection Successful");
catch(NamingException ex)
{"Sorry Connection Unsuccessful"+"Error: "+ ex);
so I went into debug mode and i got the stack for it and I checked, and I don't know what's wrong with.....did i not give correct permissions for LDAP, since i link the libraries by reference rather than installing the jar files??anyways this is the stack(the relevant part anyway):-
at java/lang/Class.forName (
at com/sun/naming/internal/VersionHelper11.loadClass (
at javax/naming/spi/NamingManager.getInitialContext (
at javax/naming/InitialContext.getDefaultInitCtx (
at javax/naming/InitialContext.init (
at javax/naming/InitialContext.<init> (
at javax/naming/directory/InitialDirContext.<init> (
at Query.btnGo_click (
Thanks in advance, if somebody could help me, i would be most grateful.
Best Regards,
