ADS will give you two major things:

 - Kerberos 5 authentication (use JAAS to access)
 - LDAP interface (use JNDI to access)

What will your Tomcat use of those services, is up to you. You could
authenticate your users against ADS, but without encryption, that would
defeat the purpose of Kerberos 5. HTTPS + basic authentication -> ADS sounds
OK. As for Digest, well, do the browsers support it? Last I heard, there
were problems.
