Ldaptive is asynchronous at it’s core since it is built on Netty. The
#execute method blocks until a result is received, however it’s possible to configure handlers to process results as they arrive.
If your goal is to execute non-blocking searches, also consider using one of the implementations in the concurrent package.
Search Entry Handlers
Ldaptive provides a few entry handler implementations for convenience:
Provides the ability to modify the case of entry DNs, attribute names, and attribute values.
Provides the ability to inject an attribute containing the entry DN into each entry. Provides a client side implementation of RFC 5020.
Provides the ability to merge the values of one or more attributes into a single attribute. The merged attribute may or may not already exist int the entry. If it does exist its existing values will remain intact.
Performs a recursive search based on a supplied attribute and merges the results of the recursive search into the original entry. This handler can be used to provide convenient access to nested structures like groups.
