Simplify your life and have a look at Jespa (  It is free for testing, and

not expensive for production.  Download the Operator's Guide and read it.

It works all in Tomcat and doesn't require any other pieces than itself (*) - and a 
Windows domain environment of course.

There are several other ways, but I am not familiar with them.

Any type of web-based "Windows Integrated Authentication" (to give it one of it's many 
names) requires that the browser supports it. I can confirm that it works with IE and with

Firefox.  I do not know about the others.

(*) Sorry, ooops, it does require a jar from Samba (jcifs.jar). The Operator Manual tells

you that, and where to get it from.
