Web login page versus Swing Login UI

So with Web and J2EE we have this great integration with a FORM simple web page and passing the Principal to the Servlets and on to Services. This is great, easy to do.

But what if you have a Swing application and you have a Swing login page to login, How do you pass the Principal down to say EBJ3 Session Beans that are declared that the called needs to be in a role. I don't seem to find any nice integration like you have in Web UIs.

Mark, I would declare my remote to take a Principal argument, and intercept the call to authenticate/authorize.
