We certainly don't want that.

With WLS 6.x, you can use the ldap realm v2 to access active directory.

With WLS 7.x and 8.x, you can use the External LDAP Authentication provider
to access
active directory.

If you have to use JNDI to access Active Directory, then you can write your
own authentication
security provider and hook it up with WLS.
