Securing Metro WebServices

Hi Kumar,
We have a requirement where our web service (JDK1.6, Metro and JBoss) need to consume a AD token from client and validate that token against AD before proceeding with other activity. I am really struggling to make it work for last couple of days but nothing is working.
I have created the keytab file, updated login-config.xml to include the keytab file but nothing seems working. Can you please help.
Thank you very much.
Best Regards - Roy
