I am trying to use a condition to evaluate whether a string that a User
entered into a form is the cn of an existing object in the users
container. Right now I'm fudging it by looking for Last Name on the
object and catching the error if the object doesn't exist.

Looking through the forums there seem to be two viable options: write
my own java code and call it from ECMAScript, or use custom validation
on the form to prevent submission if the name is not unique. I'm
leaning toward the latter if there aren't any other easier ways.

I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing some functionality that makes
this trivial, and if I'm not, whether or not there are other
alternatives than what I mentioned above. Is what I'm doing now poor
style or do you think it's "good enough"?
