[jcifs] jcifs & Tomcat & Struts

Hi there, I was very impressed to stumble across jcifs. I was so excited, I
did a little dance.

I have configured Tomcat with the jcifs.http.NtlmHttpFilter, and it is
working beautifully.
However, my knowledge of Tomcat 'filters' is not extensive. I have search
for further info on this, but maybe it's just best to ask.

What I want to do:
*	NTLM Authentication via the filter.
*	Pass details in to our existing security model (create sessions
roles etc) - note we do not sue the Tomcat Security stuff.
*	Page is then executed using the Struts Action Servlet.

Can some one give me some pointers on how I get user information (username
etc) that was checked during the filter phase so it can be used in our
Struts Security plug in.

Maybe I'll say that again: How do I access any objects created in Filters
into something running in a following Servlet context?

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.
