The book discusses JAAS extensively...right from:
JAAS Basic Concepts and APIs,
JAAS programming model for Authentication and Authorization
How to implement JAAS Login Module and configuration
How to implement JAAS clients
How to enable JAAS Shared-state for Single sign-on
JAAS based Smartcard and Biometrics Authentication Login Module

We also identified JAAS based strategies in Web-tier and Bus-tier Security patterns.

Refer Chapter 4, 5, 9, 10 and 15, for JAAS based security strategies.

Hope this helps.
