I am a newbie to ldap. I have ADAM (Active Directory Application Mode)
as our LDAP server. I am using netscape's LDAP service provider SDK.

i was just trying the following snippet of code.
this should create the directory entry but i am gettin
NoSuchAttributeException at the bind statement.

what am i missing here ? also do i need to create something in the
schema in order to store Integer objects i nthe directory ?

also i have created an application specific partition while creating
ADAM instance. do i need to provide that in the PROVIDER_URL ?

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

public class ADAMDemo {

     final static String ldapServerName = "localhost";
     final static int ldapPort = 389;

     public static void main( String[] args ) {
             // set up environment to access the server
             Hashtable<String, String> env = new Hashtable<String,
             env.put( Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY,
                      "com.netscape.jndi.ldap.LdapContextFactory" );
             env.put( Context.PROVIDER_URL, "ldap://" + ldapServerName
+ ":" + ldapPort);
             try {
                     // obtain initial directory context using the
                     DirContext ctx = new InitialDirContext( env );

                     // create some random number to add to the
                     Integer i = new Integer( 28420 );

                     System.out.println( "Adding " + i + " to
directory..." );
                     ctx.bind("cn=myRandomInt", i);

                     i = new Integer( 98765 );

                     System.out.println( "i is now: " + i );
                     i = (Integer) ctx.lookup( "cn=myRandomInt" );
                     System.out.println( "Retrieved i from directory
with value: " + i );
             } catch ( NameAlreadyBoundException nabe ) {
                     System.err.println( "value has already been
bound!" );
             } catch ( Exception e ) {

thanks in advance. any kind of help is appreciated.
