I have a client/server aplication. A Swing client and a Jboss server with ejb's 2.1
The client aplication can run with a standalone aplication (script .bat o .sh) or web start.
Everything is OK with Jboss 4.2.3 version and previous, my problem is with Jboss 5.1.0.
With Jboss 5.1.0 the standalone aplication functions well, but with web start i have a problem when i obtain the object EJBContext.getCallerPrincipal() in a EJB method; i always obtain anonymous.
In the client side i have configurated all variables and parameters JAAS. And i fill an object that i pass through every call to the Jboss server with the session context.
I try with JRE 1.6.20 but the problem persist, ¿Is there a problem with JBoss 5.1.0 and webstart to obtain objet Principal?
Sorry but my english is poor.
May it be problem with some limited rigthts of applications started by Web start? Are all your jars signed?
