How to implement Kerberos with applications?

Hello All,
I have been reading information on how to implement kerberos within applications that we have. I need some help understanding what I need to do.  I would like to use a java web application as an example.

1)  Once I have kerberos installed and configured, the service would be the server where my web application is located, correct?

2)  To get the client to use the java web application, I would need to write separate code using JAAS and Java GSS-API to allow authentication and authorization to occur?  I need an example to understand this concept or explanation.  At what point does the client begin using the web application? I am confused.  Is this new code inside my application or is it a separate application?

3) To be clear, once I have kerberos installed and configured, I use JAAS and Java GSS-API for a java application?  What if my application is not written in java, lets say it is written in Fortran on OpenVMS?  I know Kerberos is available on OpenVMS.

Thank you for your input.

Just answer this answer for me.
At what point do I invoke my java web application to begin? For examples sake, lets say I have java web applications (app1 and app2) and the user would like to get to app1.  I am trying to understand where the Kerberos ends and my application begins.  Thank you!
