Filter Security

We have a Filter where we would like to do some logging to the database. The datasource pool is protected via declarative security and we get permission errors in the Filter because of this. In a servlet, we would get around this by setting the <run-as> role on the servlet in web.xml. There does not seem to be a way to do this with a Filter.
