sqldeveloper new connection using ldap,  no ldap contexts ?

I'm trying to track down a problem we are having with sql developer
to set up a new connection using the LDAP method, obtaining the
net service name from a sun one ldap server.

The net service names are stored in the sun one ldap server, ldap.ora is
configured correctly and tnsping and sqlplus successfully obtain a
databases netservice details, but sql developer doesn't.

When creating a new connection and specifying the connection type as ldap, after selecting
the required ldap server, instead of listing any contexts the error
Status: Failure -[LDAP: error code 32 - No Such Object]

It seems sqldeveloper extracts the available directory servers from the DIRECTORY_SERVERS
setting in ldap.ora but doesn't use the DEFAULT_ADMIN_CONTEXT setting.

Does sql developer query the directory server for a list of contexts ? If so, what ldap search
query does it use ?
