Exceptions being hidden when thrown by InitialContextFactory from a Builder
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: ARIES-515
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ARIES-515
             Project: Aries
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: JNDI
    Affects Versions: 0.3
            Reporter: Alasdair Nottingham
            Assignee: Alasdair Nottingham
             Fix For: 0.3


A common use of JNDI is to perform authentication against an LDAP registry of users. This
typically works by going new InitialDirContext(props) where the props contains a userid/password.
This requires the AuthenticationException to be thrown from the InitialDirContext constructor.
When used with the default JNDI implementation what actually happens is you get a NoInitialContextException
because the creation of the Context fails and if the ICF was created from an ICFB then the
exception is swallowed rather than rethrown.
