Let's take a step back: is the extra info used to authenticate the user?
or is it used by the webapp itself, after the user has logged in?

In the latter case, you can store a user-specific object in the session
after the user logs in.  Many people write a ServletFilter that checks
for said object and, if it doesn't exist, creates/populates it.

(Of course, the filter should only be mapped to protected areas; it is
otherwise of limited value ;)
