Notice that the Context(in the API reference documentation) and DirContext(in the API reference documentation) interfaces include overloaded forms of each method: one that accepts a java.lang.String name and one that accepts a Name(in the API reference documentation). Each pair of these overloaded methods is equivalent in that if the Name and java.lang.String parameters are simply different representations of the same name, then the overloaded versions of the same methods behave in the same way.

For the purposes of this trail, you can just think of and use the name parameter as a name in the target namespace (such as that of your LDAP server). For a more thorough discussion of names, see the Beyond the Basics (in the Beyond the Basics trail) trail.
