You can get the current user-name using System.getProperty ( "user.name" ) ;

For LDAP, try this library: http://www.openldap.org/jldap/

Any LDAP authentication routine typically contain two binds. The first bind should be as a service account (probably better not to use the directory-manager account) which does the search for the user's DN. The second bind actually binds as the user with the password given, so you don't need to compare anything. The directory simply returns authentication success or failure (the latter throws an AuthenticationException).
