getCallerPrincipal in Managed Bean

in EJB I can use getCallerPrincipal() from javax.ejb.SessionContext; I wonder how to get this information when I just use JSF, i.e. from within a Managed Bean only?

I appreciate any help.

I usually put this kind of code in a special "JSFUtils" class in order to keep the bulk of the code framework-independent. But yes, that's the function you need.
