JAAS handles authentication and the AuthInterceptor manages authorisation.
This leverages off the strength of JAAS and has the flexibility required for
our needs.

A couple of sources of useful information are:

2. WebWork in Action
3. Mark Mernards Blog has good example of implementing an interceptor.
