Goal

Have configured a Join View Adapter with secondary adapter as the bind adapter

When a Join View is created, by default the user RDN in the Join view adapter will use the RDN of the primary adapter. So, it is not possible to bind using the secondary adapter's user RDN

Example:

User DN in the Primary Adapter: cn=user1,cn=oidusers,cn=oracle,cn=com
User DN in the Secondary Adapter: uid=user1,cn=adusers,cn=oracle,cn=com
User DN in the Join View Adapter : cn=user1,cn=joinusers,cn=oracle,cn=com

The requirement is to bind to the join view adapter using the user DN as stored in the secondary adatper.
ie..bind using the user DN uid=user1,cn=joinusers,cn=oracle,cn=com
