    Hashtable deprecated

    810988
      I have been using InitialDirContext(env) for interrogating an LDAP directory. It's been working successfully.

      However when I declare the Hashtable to create the env to pass over, I am advised that
      Hashtable is an obsolete collection.

      I tried looking for an alternative to use, but it may be my inexperience
      but I haven't been able to locate it yet.

      Is there a non-deprecated way to connect to an LDAP directory to
      perform searches?

      Thanks

          You don't have any choice. The API is defined to use Hashtable. You have to use Hashtable.

          Hashtable is not deprecated, although it is indeed obsolete.

            ... by some program, likely an IDE, you're using.

            Don't believe everything a piece of technology tells you; it does not know context, it cannot reason. You can, so trust your own brain first.
