    RMI question.

    Andrew Newbie

      Hi again.
      Still trying to understand user principal propagation. Looks like I found how it goes but due to lack of RMI experince I need confirmation from RMI gurus.
      So SecurityAssociation class on the client side stores user principals and credentials inside its static InheritableThreadLocal class instances. Using InheritableThreadLocal variables ensures that the principals data within them will be also available in child threads no matter where they are: on the local JVM or created on the server side by RMI calls.

      Do I get it right ?
      Do inheritable Thread data propagate with RMI calls ?
