Yes, you can use Samba, and even just use a workstation with a file-share for prototyping/testing.

  Subject: [jcifs] Windows domain required for authentication?

  Hi all,

  within a prototyping project we have to evaluate authentication on a Windows
  domain from a Java application running on Linux. My question is:

  - do I really need a Windows domain controller installed or can I authentify
  against Samba on a Linux based host instead of a Windows Box?

  I would like to avoid bringing a Windows machine into my project. It would be
  great if we could simulate it with Samba!

  Any hint is appreciated!

  Best regards
