Create unprotected area

Hello, guys
I have an application which is secured via form authentication. Just for the record, it is running under JBoss 4. Now I need to create a 'public access' to certain parts of the application. Is there a way to 'unprotect' a resource collection? Here is what I have:

Can I just create other security-constraints with ot auth-constraint to allow annonymous access to these parts? Or is there a way to give unauthenticated users a role until they enter bump into a more restricted security-constraint? Thanks
