web application user management

I believe most of the web applications use container managed user authorization/authentication provided by their respective application servers.

And in cases where more customizations are needed applications managed user authorization/authentication is preferred.

I find though the container managed user authorization/authentication mechanism performs the important tasks, it does provide much flexibility when it comes to providing customized screens to administer the users.

In such cases it requires one to incorporate some parts of user management within the application.

I was wondering is there a library or framework for java web applications that make the task of user management easier.

I used to use Netegrity,, but it's less than library.
