Check to see if you have "user.properties" and / or "role.properties" somewhere else in you jboss install directory.
Not sure if this is your issue, but I had the same trouble I had files named "users.properties" and "roles.properties" in the default/conf directory, which I guess is earlier in the classpath than the WEB-INF/classes directory.
seems like there was a older copy of roles.properties lying in default/conf folder, which was causing the issues.
Thanks a lot, Jack!!!
i am interested in what you have done and i would like to do it. can you append the files you have changed?
