Webapp stands for Web Applications, or, if you seen *.war files, war
stands for Web Application aRchive. War files have a deployment
descriptor inside, in WEB-INF/web.xml file. All this (and more) is
described in servlet specification or Java Server Pages specification.

Can't tell you complete example (do not remember everything), but it
should include <auth-constraint>, <auth-method>, and some other tags in
web.xml file.

Hope now it's more helpful for you,
