Subject RE: Proper use of LdapConnectionPool
Date Wed, 28 Jan 2015 08:03:27 GMT
Hi, Emmanuel.

Yes, the following code does not return an Entry.  Nothing is printed to my console when I
use OBJECT.  As soon as I change it to SUBTREE, 1 Entry is printed to my console.

I'm observing comparable behavior in Apache Directory Studio.

public Person searchLdapUsingHybridApproach(String query) {
		SearchCursor cursor = new SearchCursorImpl(null, 30000, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
        LdapConnection connection = new LdapNetworkConnection(host, port);
        Entry entry = null;
        Person p = null;
        try {
            connection.bind(dn, pwd);
            SearchRequest sr = new SearchRequestImpl();
            sr.setBase(new Dn(searchBase));
            StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder(query);
            sr.setScope( SearchScope.OBJECT );
            cursor =;
            Response response;

            while ( && cursor.isEntry()) {
                response = cursor.get();
                entry = cursor.getEntry();
                EntryMapper<Person> em = Person.getEntryMapper();
	            p =;
        } catch (LdapException ex) {
            Logger.getLogger(LdapClient.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
        } catch (CursorException ex) {
            Logger.getLogger(LdapClient.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
        } finally {
            try {
            } catch (IOException ex) {
                Logger.getLogger(LdapClient.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);

        return p;

the scope to either ONELEVEL or OBJECT, the cursor comes back empty.
ONE_LEVEL applied on a terminal entry will return nothing. With OBJECT, if the entry exists,
it should work.

If you can test the simplest possible code that grab an entry with OBJECT scope, and if it
does not work, then it may be a bug, but then, I'd like to know about.
