JAASRealm and groups

Hi all,

I have just configured a Jaasrealm in tomcat which retrieves user principal and role principals from the database.
Now for displaying in the web page, roles have to be grouped by specifying groups

Example: If I get users,myuser from database, the webpage [existing page, expects a role of appusers], where appusers is a "group".

How do I specify a group information in tomcat ?
where can I associate roles to groups in tomcat

Any suggestions anyone ? please help
Is this possible atleast
we are migrating from sunone web server and in sunone there is a role -group mapping. A set of roles can be grouped and specified in sunone's deployment descriptor file.

I have tried adding role-links in Tomcat's web.xml file - didnt help. I tried creating entries in tomcat-users.xml file, didnt help

Please help
