And how are ADS-credentials and LDAP'S "IDs" synchronized?

Why don't you put the roles into ADS? ADS is based on LDAP with
Kerberos-authentication, so it should be no problem to add the
necessary schema extensions (untested - I have no ADS).

BTW: There is a book called "Professional Apache Tomcat 6" at John
Wiley ( with some advice how to setup authentication by
file, LDAP, PAM or database.
