You shouldn't have to override the service method, unless you are doing 
something out of the ordinary;  NtlmServlet manages authentication in this 
method behind the scenes, then calls the superclass HttpServlet's service 
method, which simply calls doGet, doPost, etc. (depending on the request method 
currently being serviced).  For "normal" servlets, you just override doGet 
and/or doPost, which ends up doing the following:

NtlmServlet.service --> HttpServlet.service --> MyNtlmServlet.doGet

In most cases, NtlmServlet should act as a drop-in replacement for 
HttpServlet.  As a simple (and rather boring) example, this should get you 

package jcifs.http;

import java.io.*;
import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;

public class MyNtlmServlet extends NtlmServlet {

    protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest request,
            HttpServletResponse response) throws IOException, ServletException {
