HIPAA security and Java?

I'm working on a server application that will eventually be subject to the security requirements of HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). Many of the compliance approaches I've seen make extensive use of row-based security at the database layer, but I'm wondering whether the Java application layer can handle some of the security requirements instead. Has anyone out there found an effective combination of Java and database security architectures, and if so can you recommend any resources?

Thanks,
Tom

    In my application system, dbo is the only role we use to do all the database operation. Security rules are strictly member-based and role-based, those rules defined and manipulated in java classes. The approach: users(browser)-servlet(session class)-java class(entity)-jdbc-database.

    good luck
