I am able to do this by setting the "userpassword" attribute to the new password. The following example sets the password for a user who's complete DN is in ldapDN to newPassword using a DirContext object named ldapContext. Note that ldapContext must be authenticated.

Attributes newPassAttributes = new BasicAttributes( PASSWORD_ATTRIBUTE, newPassword);
try {
ldapContext.REPLACE_ATTRIBUTE, newPassAttributes);
} catch (NamingException e) {
errorMessage = "Could not change password. " + e.getMessage();
return false;
