How can we pass USerName Programatically to Weblogic before Weblogic checks for Authorization Access for the EJB.

Currently I have configured the UserName,Group, Scoped Roles and Scoped Policies for the specified EJB for whom the access needs to be restricted.

As i am unable to pass the username to weblogic( I am not using Weblogic Authentication) it does not allow access to valid users too considering all username as anonymous.

Can anyone throw soem light?

Thanks and Regards

Is the EJB client internal or external to WebLogic? What code are you using to call the EJB?

Client is internal.
call to EJB is through a Service Abstraction Layer.
It has a Service Locator and through that we get the handle to the Remote Object and we call methods on that EJB.

My Problem is, I have a manula Authentication mechanism using a Database.
I want to use Weblogic Authorization to restrict access on EJB.

How do i set the Username/Password of the user accessing the EJB.?
I agree. Here's the link:
