I am authenticating against LDAP as such:

Hashtable authEnv = new Hashtable();
String dn =
"CN=" + userAuth.getFirstName() + " " + userAuth.getLastName() +

authEnv.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "ldap://");
authEnv.put(Context.SECURITY_AUTHENTICATION, "simple");
authEnv.put(Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL, dn);
authEnv.put(Context.SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, password);

I am using the user's first and last name to authenticate. Now, I want to use their login id to authenticate. I was told "to change the Search Attribute from 'uid' to 'sAMAccountName'". I don't know what this refers to. Does anybody have any ideas?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
