I think what they are trying to do is use the web application from a
client written in Java as opposed to accessing it via a web browser
and integrating WebLogic realm based security with the NTLM
authentication filter.

Shouldn't realm based security work just by using the filter? You
shouldn't need a seaprate login form or anything like that unless I am
missing something, which is entirely possible as I don't use realm
based security.
