Getting the JAAS Subject from an session bean.

Hi Guys!!
I've created my own JAAS principal, and attached it to an existing subject's principals in the web container. How do we access the subject from the EJB container? The standard sessionctx.getUserPrincipal() from the session bean only returns ONE principal.
I'd appreciate any help!

Hello Martin -
I'm going to move this up to the EJB forum and see if you don't get a few more responses.

Here's a dirty little secret -- JAAS is NOT integrated with the J2EE specifications in this way. I'm not sure you CAN retrieve the extra principals in the EJB container -- it would vary on your container, and some containers probably won't allow it...
