Struts2 and State Control

I am fairly new to the Struts2 framework and J2EE in general and currently am struggling with find the best way to maintain state models for the objects in my domain.

For example, I may have an object called Account. When the account status is "active', it should only be updated by Users with roles A and B, readonly for roles C and E, and invisible to E. However, when the status is "Completed", the Account should be visible to everyone.

I would like to ask the experts out there and see what type of design patterns, or framework features I can use to implement this type of logic. Would it be mostly coding the UI layer based on the various state values, perhaps clone the pages for different roles and states? I would hate to do this and would love to hear any elegant methods commonly used for this.

thanks in advance.
