Interface AttributesMapper


public interface AttributesMapper

An interface used by LdapTemplate for mapping LDAP Attributes to beans. Implementions of this interface perform the actual work of extracting results, but need not worry about exception handling. NamingExceptions will be caught and handled correctly by the LdapTemplate class.

Typically used in LdapTemplate's search methods. AttributeMapper objects are typically stateless and thus reusable; they are ideal for implementing attribute-mapping logic in one place.

Alternatively, consider using a ContextMapper in stead.
