Finally I Know how to get window login client username using 3rd Party API called Waffle. put waffle-api.jar on your project classpath. then put this xml code on your web.xml

<filter>
    <filter-name>SecurityFilter</filter-name>
    <filter-class>waffle.servlet.NegotiateSecurityFilter</filter-class>
    <init-param>
        <param-name>principalFormat</param-name>
        <param-value>fqn</param-value>
    </init-param>
    <init-param>
        <param-name>roleFormat</param-name>
        <param-value>both</param-value>
    </init-param>
    <init-param>
        <param-name>allowGuestLogin</param-name>
        <param-value>true</param-value>
    </init-param>
    <init-param>
        <param-name>securityFilterProviders</param-name>
        <param-value>
        waffle.servlet.spi.NegotiateSecurityFilterProvider
        waffle.servlet.spi.BasicSecurityFilterProvider
    </param-value>
    </init-param>
    <init-param>
        <param-name>waffle.servlet.spi.NegotiateSecurityFilterProvider/protocols</param-name>
        <param-value>
        Negotiate
        NTLM
    </param-value>
    </init-param>
    <init-param>
        <param-name>waffle.servlet.spi.BasicSecurityFilterProvider/realm</param-name>
        <param-value>WaffleFilterDemo</param-value>
    </init-param>
</filter>
<filter-mapping>
    <filter-name>SecurityFilter</filter-name>
    <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>
</filter-mapping>

and use below code to get your clients username ;

HttpServletRequest request = (HttpServletRequest) Executions.getCurrent().getNativeRequest();
String user = request.getRemoteUser();

This is a common problem for all web applications cause the browser doesn't send your login name to the application server.(The main reason is security)

You can take a look to start with kerberos here:
