What does your entry in your auth.conf look like ? Probably you misplaced a ; or something, see the other post from today regarding this.
That brings up another question.
Where do I have to place the file "auth.conf" and how do I find out which file had been used to configure jaas.
If I understood it right there should be one file in Jboss/conf/tomcat and one file on the client side in the classpath.
am I right?

For details, check the online documentation + the JBossSX article in JavaWorld.
My 2 Rappen :
whenever you do a JAAS login, the default JAAS behaviour will be to look for an auth.conf (see Sun's JAAS doc to see how exactly it does this) and for an entry corresponding to the name you've given. The JBoss container will try to do such a login if you're accessing a bean which you've deployed within a security context (the name of security context is the entry in the auth.conf that will be looked up)

Actually Tomcat's auth.conf is your client side configuration (Tomcat being the JBoss client), so you've got one for Tomcat, and one for JBoss: jboss/conf//auth.conf (containing, at the minimum, the security domains you're using in the deployment)
