Package org.springframework.ldap.filter Description

Utility classes for dynamically building LDAP filters. Filters can be nested and wrapped around each other:

AndFilter andFilter = new AndFilter();
andFilter.and(new EqualsFilter("objectclass", "person");
andFilter.and(new EqualsFilter("cn", "Some CN");
OrFilter orFilter = new OrFilter();
orFilter.or(new EqualsFilter("objectclass", "organizationalUnit));
would result in:
(|(&(objectclass=person)(cn=Some CN))(objectclass=organizationalUnit))
