I am closing this issue. The security framework is in place.  Embedding of LDAP should be
a different issue and has to be prioritized in context  to J2's release.

I started to explore eve (http://incubator.apache.org/directory/subprojects/eve/index.html).
 Embedding eve would require quite a bit of work and the project still seem fairly young.

Security handlers were introduced in J2 to provide an SPI layer to the security composite

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.
