JAAS Authentication in MDB

Last Modified: 2013-11-24
We are using Weblogic Application server 8.1.
There is a session bean (sb1) sending a JMS message that is processed by an MDB which in turn calls another session bean (sb2). In this situation can the mdb or sb2 leverage the JAAS authentication already done before calling sb1. If not can the mdb leverage the custom authentication provider to ease the pain of doing the authentication again and set the authenticated user roles that sb2 can leverage. (the session bean sb2 methods require authorization)

The MDB will not use the Principal of the sender (sb1). Sender and receiver are decoupled and receiver runs in its own thread.
You can use the run-as setting in the deployment descriptor or use login programatically.
