You can unit test pretty much any Java code, whether it's for a web application or a pure back-end system. You just instantiate the objects you want to test in your JUnit test method and go about asserting stuff.

What I suspect you're looking for, though, is functional testing of a web application. For that, you should look for tools such as JWebUnit, Watir and Selenium.
