    Principal Extension

    Fin Steenbjerg Newbie

      Hi

      I want to create my own LoginModule and this module needs to add some special information (identifying the user globally - not only in the security domain) to the CallerPrincipal so that my session beans can use the principal returned from getCallerPrincipal() to uniquely identify the user.

      I tried letting the login module add a "CallerPrincipal" (an instance of SimpleGroup) containing a principal instance (an instance of an extended SimplePrincipal with the added user information). But this is not the principal object returned from getCallerPrincipal.

      I have also seen an article describing that the subject should be store in the jndi with name java:comp/env/security/subject but this jndi entry does not exist.

      Can anyone help me out here.

      Thanks, Fin.
