Hi,

I'm facing an issue when trying to log my users using the J2EE authentication.
Indeed, when I watch in debug mode, I can find my Principal on the HTTPRequest object in the BridgeServlet.
But when I try to access it in the application (inside the RAP framework) using RWT.getRequest().getUserPrincipal() it doesn't work on Websphere.

This was tried under Tomcat and it work because the Principal are stored in the Request. But in Webpshere, the Principal are stored in a context that seems not to be accessible by the RAP application.

Maybe there is an option to launch the RAP framework using the same thread/classloader as Websphere ?

Has anybody already tried and succeed in getting the Principals in the application under Websphere ?

Hi,

you'll have to obtain the principal from the request thread like this:

RWT.requestThreadExec( new Runnable() {
run() {
RWT.getRequest().getUserPrincipal();
}
} );

Hi,

Thank you for your answer which solves my authentication issue.
I succeed accessing to Principal.

Now, I'm facing an issue when trying to invoke a secured remote EJB.

The Subject does not seem to be propagated by the container.
Credentials are not put on the request so EJB can not be invoked.

I try to access Subject in RAP application and on request thread without success. It is always null or empty.

Do you have clues about this issue?
Thank you.

Hi,

I'm afraid I can't help with this issue. But if the requestThreadExec()
workaround does not help, it might not be a RAP issue at all. Have you
tried to access the Subject from a normal servlet? If you can reproduce
your problem with a servlet, chances are that you get more insight on a
Java EE forum.

Best regards, Ralf
