Quoting from a post to the list a few days ago:

NtlmPasswordAuthentication mycreds =
new NtlmPasswordAuthentication("domain", "normaluser", "password");
NtlmPasswordAuthentication auth =
new NtlmPasswordAuthentication("domain", "Administrator", "adminpass");
if (UserUtilities.changePassword(mycreds,"newpassword",auth))

This uses the administrator account to change normaluser's password to 
"newpassword".  Password changes (and setting the password on created 
accounts) requires an ARC4 cipher provider; this is the BouncyCastle 
provider above, available from http://www.bouncycastle.org.  The rap 
package contains a "CreateUser.java" example in the examples directory 
to create a user; deleting is fairly similar.
