[jcifs] roles

The jcifs-ext project has an extended filter which provides domain
group information:


The class name is "jcifs.http.AuthenticationFilter" instead of
"jcifs.http.NtlmHttpFilter", but other than that it should be pretty
much a drop-in replacement.  Just stick the jcifs-ext jarfile in with
the jCIFS jar and update web.xml to reference AuthenticationFilter. 
If everything goes well, you should be able to do:


to check if a user is in a given domain group.

Another newbie question - need a pointer in the right direction.  We
want to authenticate a user against a domain (authentication) and a
role/group (authorization), but I don't think that's possible.  If
that's the case then we need to check IsUserInRole for a particular
Group.  Only the username and domain will be available, not the
password.  Would we need to look up the roles that a user is a member
of using Active Directory ?


Thank you.
