    Should portlet and servlet from same web app be able to shar

    Michael Chan Newbie

      Hi everyone,

      My portlet has a link to a servlet within the same web application. However, since portlet is deployed by the JBoss portal web app and my servlet has its own web context, the user credential is not shared between the two.

      e.g. In my portlet code,
      I have:
      request.getRemoteUser() == "myuserId"

      but in my servlet code,
      request.getRemoteUser() == null

      Note that both the portlet and the servlet are from the same WAR file.

      Here is my portlet link:
      https://www.obeliskfinancial.com/portal/authsec/portal/Sundial/Reporting

      Within the portlet page, I have a link to my servlet in the same war (note the different context path)
      https://www.obeliskfinancial.com/sundial-web/ReportingServlet?designFile=somefile

      Is that an expected behavior or a bug in Jboss? I dig through the JSR 168 spec and cannot find anything. Have anyone experience this?

      environment:

      jboss-portal-2.4.0 [bundle download]
      OS Platform [Redhat Linux/Windows XP]

      Thanks,
