    Seam Container Managed Security

    Chad Skinner Newbie

      I know from the documentation and other forum messages that seam security does not integrate with container managed security, but does seam work with container managed security at all?

      I have a log in form that uses the standard container managed authentication form fields. It appears that I can authenticate successfully, but upon going to a facelets page that checks to see if a user is in a given role it always says I am authenticated as annoymous and that I have no roles.

      I would like to know if this is a limitation is seam or whether this should work and I am doing something wrong.

      Basically, I want to be able to log into the server using container managed security and then annotate the ejb methods with the standard @RequireRoles annotation to limit what methods a user can call on the EJB. My ejb also provides a few method that my JSF components can call in the rendered method to handle page specific authentication based on roles. Does anyone know if this should work with seam?
