/**
 * The directory service interface, containing
 * methods for examining and updating attributes
 * associated with objects, and for searching the directory.
 *
 * <h1>Names</h1>
 * Each name passed as an argument to a <tt>DirContext</tt> method is relative
 * to that context.  The empty name is used to name the context itself.
 * The name parameter may never be null.
 * <p>
 * Most of the methods have overloaded versions with one taking a
 * <code>Name</code> parameter and one taking a <code>String</code>.
 * These overloaded versions are equivalent in that if
 * the <code>Name</code> and <code>String</code> parameters are just
 * different representations of the same name, then the overloaded
 * versions of the same methods behave the same.
 * In the method descriptions below, only one version is documented.
 * The second version instead has a link to the first:  the same
 * documentation applies to both.
 * <p>
 * See <tt>Context</tt> for a discussion on the interpretation of the
 * name argument to the <tt>Context</tt> methods. These same rules
 * apply to the name argument to the <tt>DirContext</tt> methods.
 *
 * <h1>Attribute Models</h1>
 * There are two basic models of what attributes should be
 * associated with.  First, attributes may be directly associated with a
 * DirContext object.
 * In this model, an attribute operation on the named object is
 * roughly equivalent
 * to a lookup on the name (which returns the DirContext object),
 * followed by the attribute operation invoked on the DirContext object
 * in which the caller supplies an empty name. The attributes can be viewed
 * as being stored along with the object (note that this does not imply that
 * the implementation must do so).
 * <p>
 * The second model is that attributes are associated with a
 * name (typically an atomic name) in a DirContext.
 * In this model, an attribute operation on the named object is
 * roughly equivalent to a lookup on the name of the parent DirContext of the
 * named object, followed by the attribute operation invoked on the parent
 * in which the caller supplies the terminal atomic name.
 * The attributes can be viewed as being stored in the parent DirContext
 * (again, this does not imply that the implementation must do so).
 * Objects that are not DirContexts can have attributes, as long as
 * their parents are DirContexts.
 * <p>
 * JNDI support both of these models.
 * It is up to the individual service providers to decide where to
 * "store" attributes.
 * JNDI clients are safest when they do not make assumptions about
 * whether an object's attributes are stored as part of the object, or stored
 * within the parent object and associated with the object's name.
 *
 * <h1>Attribute Type Names</h1>
 * In the <tt>getAttributes()</tt> and <tt>search()</tt> methods,
 * you can supply the attributes to return by supplying a list of
 * attribute names (strings).
 * The attributes that you get back might not have the same names as the
 * attribute names you have specified. This is because some directories
 * support features that cause them to return other attributes.  Such
 * features include attribute subclassing, attribute name synonyms, and
 * attribute language codes.
 * <p>
 * In attribute subclassing, attributes are defined in a class hierarchy.
 * In some directories, for example, the "name" attribute might be the
 * superclass of all name-related attributes, including "commonName" and
 * "surName".  Asking for the "name" attribute might return both the
 * "commonName" and "surName" attributes.
 * <p>
 * With attribute type synonyms, a directory can assign multiple names to
 * the same attribute. For example, "cn" and "commonName" might both
 * refer to the same attribute. Asking for "cn" might return the
 * "commonName" attribute.
 * <p>
 * Some directories support the language codes for attributes.
 * Asking such a directory for the "description" attribute, for example,
 * might return all of the following attributes:
 * <ul>
 * <li>description
 * <li>description;lang-en
 * <li>description;lang-de
 * <li>description;lang-fr
 * </ul>
 *
 *
 *<h1>Operational Attributes</h1>
 *<p>
 * Some directories have the notion of "operational attributes" which are
 * attributes associated with a directory object for administrative
 * purposes. An example of operational attributes is the access control
 * list for an object.
 * <p>
 * In the <tt>getAttributes()</tt> and <tt>search()</tt> methods,
 * you can specify that all attributes associated with the requested objects
 * be returned by supply <tt>null</tt> as the list of attributes to return.
 * The attributes returned do <em>not</em> include operational attributes.
 * In order to retrieve operational attributes, you must name them explicitly.
 *
 *
 * <h1>Named Context</h1>
 * <p>
 * There are certain methods in which the name must resolve to a context
 * (for example, when searching a single level context). The documentation
 * of such methods
 * use the term <em>named context</em> to describe their name parameter.
 * For these methods, if the named object is not a DirContext,
 * <code>NotContextException</code> is thrown.
 * Aside from these methods, there is no requirement that the
 * <em>named object</em> be a DirContext.
 *
 *<h1>Parameters</h1>
 *<p>
 * An <tt>Attributes</tt>, <tt>SearchControls</tt>, or array object
 * passed as a parameter to any method will not be modified by the
 * service provider.  The service provider may keep a reference to it
 * for the duration of the operation, including any enumeration of the
 * method's results and the processing of any referrals generated.
 * The caller should not modify the object during this time.
 * An <tt>Attributes</tt> object returned by any method is owned by
 * the caller.  The caller may subsequently modify it; the service
 * provider will not.
 *
 *<h1>Exceptions</h1>
 *<p>
 * All the methods in this interface can throw a NamingException or
 * any of its subclasses. See NamingException and their subclasses
 * for details on each exception.

     *<p>

     * attribute <em>A</em><sub>2</sub> of an object if

     * <em>A</em><sub>1</sub> without affecting the comparison.  It

     * testing for a match is equivalent to testing for the presence
     * of an attribute <em>A</em><sub>2</sub> with the same
     * identifier.
     *<p>
     * The precise definition of "equality" used in comparing attribute values
     * is defined by the underlying directory service.  It might use the
     * <code>Object.equals</code> method, for example, or might use a schema
     * to specify a different equality operation.
     * For matching based on operations other than equality (such as

     * The format and interpretation of <code>filter</code> follows RFC 2254
     * with the
     * following interpretations for <code>attr</code> and <code>value</code>
     * mentioned in the RFC.
     * <p>
     * <code>attr</code> is the attribute's identifier.
     * <p>
     * <code>value</code> is the string representation the attribute's value.
     * The translation of this string representation into the attribute's value
     * is directory-specific.
     * <p>
     * For the assertion "someCount=127", for example, <code>attr</code>
     * is "someCount" and <code>value</code> is "127".
     * The provider determines, based on the attribute ID ("someCount")
     * (and possibly its schema), that the attribute's value is an integer.
     * It then parses the string "127" appropriately.
     *<p>
     * Any non-ASCII characters in the filter string should be
     * represented by the appropriate Java (Unicode) characters, and
     * not encoded as UTF-8 octets.  Alternately, the
     * "backslash-hexcode" notation described in RFC 2254 may be used.
     *<p>
     * If the directory does not support a string representation of
     * some or all of its attributes, the form of <code>search</code> that
     * accepts filter arguments in the form of Objects can be used instead.
     * The service provider for such a directory would then translate
     * the filter arguments to its service-specific representation
     * for filter evaluation.
     * See <code>search(Name, String, Object[], SearchControls)</code>.
     * <p>
     * RFC 2254 defines certain operators for the filter, including substring
     * matches, equality, approximate match, greater than, less than.  These
     * operators are mapped to operators with corresponding semantics in the
     * underlying directory. For example, for the equals operator, suppose
     * the directory has a matching rule defining "equality" of the
     * attributes in the filter. This rule would be used for checking
     * equality of the attributes specified in the filter with the attributes
     * of objects in the directory. Similarly, if the directory has a
     * matching rule for ordering, this rule would be used for
     * making "greater than" and "less than" comparisons.
     *<p>
     * Not all of the operators defined in RFC 2254 are applicable to all
     * attributes.  When an operator is not applicable, the exception
     * <code>InvalidSearchFilterException</code> is thrown.
     * <p>
     * The result is returned in an enumeration of <tt>SearchResult</tt>s.
     * Each <tt>SearchResult</tt> contains the name of the object
     * and other information about the object (see SearchResult).
     * The name is either relative to the target context of the search
     * (which is named by the <code>name</code> parameter), or
     * it is a URL string. If the target context is included in
     * the enumeration (as is possible when
     * <code>cons</code> specifies a search scope of

     * string. The <tt>SearchResult</tt> may also contain attributes of the
     * matching object if the <tt>cons</tt> argument specified that attributes
     * be returned.
