package springframeworkldapclient;

import java.util.Hashtable;
import javax.naming.Context;
import javax.naming.NamingException;
import javax.naming.ldap.InitialLdapContext;
import javax.naming.ldap.LdapContext;

public class LdapContextCreation {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        LdapContextCreation ldapContxCrtn = new LdapContextCreation();
        LdapContext ctx = ldapContxCrtn.getLdapContext();

    public LdapContext getLdapContext() {
        LdapContext ctx = null;
        try {
            Hashtable env = new Hashtable();
            env.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtxFactory");
            env.put(Context.SECURITY_AUTHENTICATION, "Simple");
            env.put(Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL, "USERNAME");
            env.put(Context.SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, "PASSWORD");
            env.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "ldap://localhost:389");
            ctx = new InitialLdapContext(env, null);
            System.out.println("Connection Successful.");
        } catch (NamingException ex) {
            System.out.println("LDAP Connection: FAILED");
            System.out.println("Could not connect: " + ex);
        return ctx;
