Authenticate weblogic security realm user against LDAP

I have installed weblogic '10.3.4.0' and created a domain 'business' and created a user 'businessuser' in the default security realm 'myrealm'. The authenticator is a DefaultAuthenticator as in weblogic. Now, I want to authenticate the user in my standalone java application using LDAP. I have also tried changing the LDAP credentials. After executing the application, the system is responding with the following error: javax.naming.AuthenticationException: [LDAP: error code 49 - Invalid Credentials]. Is there any configuration to be done in weblogic that I am missing?

***** CODE-START *****

Properties l_props = new Properties();
LdapContext l_ctx = null;
l_props.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtxFactory");
l_props.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "ldap://localhost:7001");
l_props.put(Context.SECURITY_AUTHENTICATION, "simple");
l_props.put(Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL, "cn=username");
l_props.put(Context.SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, "password");
l_ctx = new InitialLdapContext(l_props, null);
