I have set up the various setting of Apache and
Tomcat to run the Servlet that is  embeded in
jcifs jar (this is jcifs_0.7.0b8) The jar
file can be used on command line to browse
the shares, but when used using the Apache/Tomcat
I get the following error.

Any ideas what step was not done correctly, and
how to fix it?

HTTP Status 500 - Internal Server Error
