Hi Jignesh,

There are two sets of api that you could use for accessing the LDAP: you could either use the sun�s javax.naming package or you can use the Netscape Directory SDK 4.0 api (which was bought by Sun anyway). If you are not comfortable with sun�s api, then you might consider trying the Netscape api, which is more intuitive and very straightforward. The advantage in this case is that you don�t need to understand any of the JNDI concepts.
