ERROR: Need to specify class name in environment or system property LDAP and JNDI

This is my code:

public class TestConnection {

public static void main(String[] args) {
String password = "s3cret";
Map<String, String> env = new HashMap<String, String>();
env.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtxFactory");
env.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "ldap://localhost:389/dc=userdev,dc=local");
env.put(Context.SECURITY_AUTHENTICATION, "simple");
//env.put(Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL, "uid="+ username +"cn=users"); // replace with user DN
env.put(Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL, "cn=dcmanager,cn=users,dc=userdev,dc=local"); // replace with user DN
env.put(Context.SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, password);

DirContext ctx = null;
try {
ctx = new InitialDirContext();
} catch (NamingException e) {
// handle
try {
SearchControls controls = new SearchControls();
controls.setSearchScope( SearchControls.SUBTREE_SCOPE); "", "(objectclass=person)", controls);
// no need to process the results
} catch (NameNotFoundException e) {
System.out.println("catch 1");
// The base context was not found.
// Just clean up and exit.
} catch (NamingException e) {
System.out.println("catch 2");
// exception handling
} finally {
// close ctx or do Java 7 try-with-resources



I got this error (catch 2) :
javax.naming.NoInitialContextException: Need to specify class name in environment or system property, or as an applet parameter, or in an application resource file: java.naming.factory.initial

I have looked for a lot of solutions, but I don't get the error.
Where is the problem?
Maybe the context, but I think that the code is perfectly correct.

You have to construct the InitialDirContext object using the env map you have populated. i.e. use the following code to construct it;

ctx = new InitialDirContext(env);
