Hi everyone,

I am new to JAAS. I am confused by following question:

In EJB, we could declare one role has the permission to execute one method like following:

My question is WHO maps the role "Users" to a particular user, for example "john smith"? HOW?

Can we pass the role in for the caller by following code?

Thanks in advance!
