Jboss5 EJB3 security just wouldn't work

Hi,

I have been struggling to find an example on internet that depicts how Security works in an EJB 3 and Jboss 5 combination.

I went through a few and nothing makes the code work.

Here is what i have:

C:\_B\softwares\jboss-5.1.0.GA\server\default\conf\users.properties:

mush=mushmush
nanu=nanunanu

C:\_B\softwares\jboss-5.1.0.GA\server\default\conf\roles.properties:
mush=user
nanu=student

My Remote Session bean:


And the client code is here:



The above code results in Exception in thread "main" javax.ejb.EJBAccessException: Invalid User.

And surprisingly the result doesn't change when i provide nanu/nanunanu as the credentials.

When is this authentication happening? Before even contacting the SessionBean is my call. Probably while trying to lookUp() it goes to my SessionBean's metadata and checks that it is secured and never lets the client go ahead.

This is now forcing me to download glassfish and move ahead.

Let me know if i have missed a trick.

Thanks in advance
