I need to pass a javax.security.Principal object to a 3rd party library.

Problem is my request.getUserPrincipal() returns null.

It looks like its an authentication thing.

How do I fix this?    Is there a basic how-to that will make sure my "user" is authenticated properly?

You are not authenticated properly. Is it a web application. See if the UI page is secured (meaning you will need a username/password to access the page). Most app servers like weblogic have standard mechanisms of doing this.
