public final class Name
extends Attribute

A single-valued attribute that represents the user-friendly identifier of an object on a target resource. For instance, the name of an Account will most often be its loginName. The value of Name need not be unique within ObjectClass. In LDAP, for example, the Name could be the Common Name (CN). Contrast this with Uid, which is intended to be a unique identifier (and, if possible, immutable):

NOTE: For some connectors, Name and Uid will be equivalent. If a target resource does not support a separate, internal identifier for an object, then the create() method can simply return a Uid that has the same string value as the Name attribute. The DatabaseTable connector is an example of a connector that might use the same value for both Name and Uid.
