Windows login username required at server end

Hello,

I have a requirement wherein I need the windows login username in my application on JBoss.

I have been investigating the JCIFS library but so far whatever I do, JCIFS tries to authenticate the user with the domain controller.

What I need is not authentication with the domain controller. I just need access to the username with which the user has logged in to the windows machine.
My application assumes that if the user has successfully logged in, he is a valid user.

Does anyone know how I may be able to achieve this? Is there any library available which can assist me access the user credentials on the server side?

Any help in this regard is highly appreciated.

Thanking everyone in advance,
Abhi
