       Body:
Multiple security handlers supported for CredentialHandler and UserSecurityHandler.

An AuthenticationProvider exposes the two above security handler to the AuthenticationProviderProxy
which manage the delegate to multiple AuthenticationProvider.

The LdapUserSecurityHandler is currently a placeholder for a future ldap implementation to
come down the road.

Description:
Security handlers were introduced in J2 to provide an SPI layer to the security composite
services.

It could be very benefitial for J2 to support multiple security handler of one type.

For instance, the UserSecurityHandler(s) are used to provide user principal resolution.  A
UserSecurityProvider layer can be introduced to allow support for multiple UserSecurityHandler(s).
 J2 can then expose to the portal users mapping to an RDBMS store as well as an LDAP store,
therefore exposing an aggregate user base from multiple backing stores.

This issue will implement multiple handlers support for user security and credentials.
