I don't think you can get the windows login name from Java.  You may have to use JNI to access some native windows script to do that.  Not sure though.

However, if you use http authentication or realm based login you can do the following:

If the browser sends the Authorization info, you can retrieve it using REMOTE_USER environment variable.

try either:
request.getRemoteUser();

or

request.getHeader("remote_user");

to see all the headers do this:
    Enumeration headerNames = request.getHeaderNames();
    while(headerNames.hasMoreElements()) {
      String headerName = (String)headerNames.nextElement();
      out.println(headerName + ":" + request.getHeader(headerName) + "<BR>");
    }

HTH,
CJ
