Try Apache Directory Server - it is Java

If you are just looking for some sort of authentication method rather than a full AD replacement or LDAP server, you may have other options.

None are going to be quick and easy to set up. AD isn't quick and easy, either. And if you are not running a domain, these won't help either.

But basically, there is no real AD replacement that will run on a desktop OS to control a non-domain environment.
