Certainly. The key is to set jCIFS properties *before* the jCIFS
classes are used. Well almost before. I think it would be ok to extend
jcifs.http.NtlmHttpFilter and override the init method in which you can
use your JNDI calls to get properties and then somehow communicate them
to the parent Filter.
