Don't read anything about JNDI : this API is pure crap, and diverge from
LDAP so much that it will make you having headaches...

Reading a few things about LDAP would help though.

OTOH, we should update the site to give more information to users ;-)

With the PersistentSearch, you will be get back any entry that has been
modified, but you won't know which modification has been done on the
entry. For that, you have to check the EntryChange control that is
returned with any SearchResultEntry.
