@Kiran, Emmanuel, Stefan

First of all thanks for the responses..

I think JExplorer is letting the LDAP server (AD in this case) decide the KEY here.
In the ethereal trace I see it just sets the exact string of what I have provided without
putting a key to it as in

He does not do a 
DN: cn=Arvind N

Rather does a 
DN: Arvind N

Also once I get the full DN I will try and use the same and verify if LDAPConnection works
Just checked out the API code to hack more and I see LDAPConnection is an interface now :(

LDAPNetworkConnection seems to have the magic now .. am I missing something ??
