How do I set the user for this session?

I am in the process of testing an authentication algorithm for a new Adobe Flex application that will be backending to a Weblogic 9.2 pageflow application.

I added authentication via JAAS to the pageflow but I was looking for a way to set the user in the session within my controller (after authentication). This way the existing pageflow should continue to work by referencing the user as:

this._remoteUser = this.getRequest().getRemoteUser();

TIA
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
