          i m also a newbee. I have done a simple authentication for users. There is a verify method implementation in IdentitySession class. This is my IdentitySession

          public Object verify(String userName, String pwd) {
          Object userId = null;
          Query query = session.createQuery(
          "select user.id " +
          "from org.jbpm.identity.User as user " +
          "where user.name = :userName " +
          " and user.password = :password");
          query.setString("userName", userName);
          query.setString("password", pwd);

          userId = (Long) query.uniqueResult();
          return userId;

          Called this verify from the Userbean as

          public String login() {
          String reVal = null ;
          Session session = JbpmContext.getCurrentJbpmContext().getSession();
          IdentitySession identitySession = new IdentitySession(session);

          if ( identitySession.verify(userName, password) != null ) {
          reVal = "home";
          FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().addMessage(null, new FacesMessage("Authentication Failed."));
          reVal = logout();
          return reVal ;

          make appropriate changes in faces-config.xml

          call userBean.login on the commandbutton event in login.jsp.

          Hope that might help you ;)

            Thanks for ur answer.
            But i didn't explaint me well (i think).

            I won't use the JBPM user and groups. I wan't to use my own user and group :).

            I found some Topics:



            http://docs.jboss.org/jbpm/v3/userguide/taskmanagement.html (chapter 11.11)



            but stil, i don't know how to use my own User and Group Class.
            Maybe myUser extends User? But i don't have a password or email in my own users like they are in JBPM Users.

              And, what is it i must write in "HERE IS WHAT YOU HAVE TO CHANGE":

              public class MyEAHandler extends ExpressionAssignmentHandler{
               protected ExpressionSession getExpressionSession() {
               JbpmContext jbpmContext = JbpmContext.getCurrentJbpmContext();
               if (jbpmContext==null) {
               throw new RuntimeException("no active JbpmContext for resolving assignment expression'"+expression+"'");
               return new IdentitySession(jbpmContext.getSession());

              ... i think i missed something -.-
