    It depends on many parameters. Like what is the nature of business transacted on the web site, how many end users are to be supported, whether its and intranet sote or is exposed to all on the internet, are there users who can perform opertions using multiple roles, can the authentication mechanisms built into the web server(s) be used etc, etc.
    See http://java.sun.com/j2ee/blueprints/apmTOC.html Specifically chapters 9.2 and 9.3 for getting some kind of orientation towards web application security.
