Hello All,

I have been working my way through HFJ and decided to branch out a bit on a personal project. I have a working login GUI interface Class and a working LDAP authentication Class. The authentication Class is using JNDI to authenticate against an Active Directory Server. I am interested in how you think it could be improved particularly in regards to security as I seem to be a bit foggy as to what (class, methods, and vars) should be set for private access and what should not. I am also fairly sure that my use of the JPassworField.getPassword() method in not exactly what it should be.

I have pasted the code for the two classes below.
