I think so... in fact I call a JNDI method but this should be a modrdn call...

Let me quote from the tutorial:

Renaming to a Different Part of the DIT

With the LDAP v3, you can rename an entry to a different part of the DIT.
To do this by using Context.rename(), you must use a context
that is the common ancestor for both the new and the old entries.
For example, to rename
"cn=C. User, ou=NewHires, o=JNDITutorial" to
"cn=C. User, ou=People, o=JNDITutorial",
you must use the context named by "o=JNDITutorial".
Following is an example that demonstrates
this. If you try to run this example against an LDAP v2 server,
then you will get an  InvalidNameException because version 2 does not support 
this feature.

ctx.rename("cn=C. User, ou=NewHires", "cn=C. User, ou=People");

Methinks, this is exactly what I have done...
