If you look at the web.xml property standards, you will see that there are parameters for setting security, like who can access a webapp. In a J2EE server, you can control access to EJBs and EJB methods. These parameters only work, if there is a JASS security system loaded.

JASS is an interface, where the actual user and role information comes from depends upon the implementation of JASS.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
