Security in WAS

I am deploying multiple WebApplications in WAS 4.0.5. The Global Security settings are active in the Server. This does not allow any application to manipulate the JNDI Tree. However one of my application uses the JNDI tree to bind and unbind a custom Bean.
In the process of unit testing I did not face any problem because I was using a local Single Server Edition with no security settings. Hence unbind operations were occuring preety fine. However since in the full installation there are other applications running too hence in order to avoid any security hastles the Administrator has activated Global Security. This prevents any Context.unbind or Context.rename operation.
I don't want to manipulate the java code of the application because that will be a major enhancement.
I want to know that is it possible to override the Global Security settings for a particular Web-Application.
Kindly provide any information you know. It would be really a great help.

try setting the
COSNamingRead,COSNamingWrite,COSNamingCreate & COSNamingDelete to EveryOne. This would be in the Administrative Role tab in the Security Center.
