Hi all,

the following statement "getSessionContext().getCallerPrincipal().getName()" is working fine and returning Usernamer in weblogic 8 and UNIX box. when we migrated the application to weblogic 10.3 and Windows box, above statement is returning <anonymous>. can any one please guide me how to solve this problem.

Thanks in advacne
