Just a small addition. Besides embedding ApacheDS (as described by Alex 
in his mail), it is also possible to ApacheDS and Tomcat independently, 
and use ApacheDS as a backend sore for users, groups, passwords. Like 
described here:

The page describes it for ApacheDS 1.0, but it mainly deals with 
configuration of Tomcat, which has not been changed.

This uses Java EE standard stuff, and will therefore not solve your 
requirement of self registration. But it is an easy first step, because 
it is configuration only.
