Looking for user management system

Anybody knows of a good (free or even paid) system for user management built on jsp / java technology? We are looking for a system that allows to authenticate users, manage subscriptions and permissions and user groups. We have found some alternatives using php but since the rest of our website is built using jsp we would like to use the same technologies if possible.
Here's the best we found so far :

Also as a side-note if we were to go for a php system for the user management part, do you guys foresee any problems related to plugging together php and jsp technologies (we would need both Apache and Tomcat servers running for this purpose)?
Thanks for posting links if you know of one with jsp

BUMP!
Nobody has any input on this matter? Please, let me know if you do! As a side-note, if you don't mind having a part of your application in php, and if like in our case your user related content is completely separated from your other business content, I would recommend that amember thing I just posted a link for. We started using that solution, and since we have both jsp and php developpers here, we managed to plug the two together without too much trouble. Our biggest constraint was getting something out as quick as possible... But I would still personnaly preffer an all jsp solution, so I'm still looking around, please post if you know of one, thanks!

Yea that's what we are currently using... Aside from the fact that it's php and that we've had to tweak things a little to connect our jsp/struts based app with it, it does the job pretty well, and seems ok for now.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
