Hi to all,

  I am running a tomcat server with a java program.  This java application that I coded uses a database to authenticate users.  I was just wondering if I could use the java servlet to invoke the microsoft NT ADSI (Active Directory Services Interface) to extract details of domain users and authenticate the user with the NT security.  A few issues here to be addressed:

1.  How do I use Java to call a Windows DLL? Is it possible?
2.  Besides the ADSI library, is there another library that I could use?  Thanks!

You use JNI (Java Native Interface) to do this. Basically you have to write a JNI DLL which acts as a bridge between Java and the target DLL.

Not aware of any existing products for interfacing Java and ADSI. LDAP may be a possibility.
