Hi All,
I installed OpenLDAP and i am trying to access slapd server using JNDI. Now, I am trying to add using JNDI. following is an example program taken from this mailing list.which I have modified according to my values.


package test;

import java.util.Hashtable;
import java.util.*;
import javax.naming.*;

class Add{

final static String rootContext = "dc=mycompany,dc=com";
final static String rootdn = "dc=Mobius,dc=mycompany,dc=com";

public static void main(String[] args) {

Hashtable env = new Hashtable(5, 0.75f);


// host and port to use for directory service
env.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "ldap://localhost:389";);

// authentication information
env.put(Context.SECURITY_AUTHENTICATION, "simple");
env.put(Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL, "secret");
env.put(Context.SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, "secret");

// entry's DN
String entryDN = "cn=people, " + rootContext ;

// entry's attributes

Attribute cn = new BasicAttribute("cn", "NewUser");
Attribute sn = new BasicAttribute("sn", "Smith"); // mandatory attribute
Attribute mail = new BasicAttribute("mail", "");
Attribute phone = new BasicAttribute("telephoneNumber", "+1 222 333 4444");

Attribute oc = new BasicAttribute("objectClass");

DirContext ctx = null;

try {
// get a handle to an Initial DirContext
ctx = new InitialDirContext(env);

// build the entry
Attributes entry = new BasicAttributes();

// Add the entry
ctx.createSubcontext(entryDN, entry);
System.out.println( "AddUser: added entry " + entryDN + ".");

} catch (NamingException e) {
System.err.println("AddUser: error adding entry." + e);
