Multiple EAR Deployment JBOSS, w/ SSO

I need to deploy multiple applications, independent yet sharing same login on one or more JBOSS app servers. Each app can be worked on & deployed independently by different groups. I'm not a techie, but want to get some techie insight on what my techies ought to be thinking about. I've heard portals, wsrp, roll-our own soln, ... bla, bla, bla !

Anyone care to provide input here ?

So basically you want to allow multiple groups to develop independent applications on the same server? Tuff one. Since JBoss allows drop EAR file deployments you could setup the file system to allow groups to write the deploy directory but restrict read/erase/edit each other's files, although this can get corrupted/confused easily. Otherwise, I'd tend to give them their own JBoss server on different ports. Especially since one application can kill another application, Java's bad for that (see: memory leaks).
