Hello,

I am working on an application that accesses LDAP using JNDI. I noticed that the javax.naming.directory.SearchControls class has a method called setDerefLinkFlag(boolean on) with which link dereferencing can be enabled (true) or disabled (false).
But, when I use the ldapsearch tool by Sun instead, not two but four options for link dereferencing are provided: 'never', 'always', 'search' or 'find'.
So, I am wondering: does the javax.naming.directory.SearchControls class just limit us to using 'always' (true) or 'never' (false), or is there another way to be able to specify 'search' or 'find'?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
