ApacheDS “service unavailable” error

If you’re writing code that uses Apache Directory Server (a free, open source LDAP server), you may get the error “service unavailable” frequently.  Apparently, there’s an issue with making 2 consecutive calls quickly to the ApacheDS server.  If you put a delay of about 1/2 second between calls, this will usually work around the problem.

ApacheDS does not appear to be capable of handling rapid requests to it.
