Experts,
  I have a java bean that is being deployed in JBOSS in the secure mode (SSL/HTTPS).  Is there a way for me to programatically find out which client (based on the ssl certificate(?)) invoked my java bean?  Please help.

Thanks,
jc

After getting the name as mentioned above, you can extract the common name (cn) to get the client name.

Thanks!!! That's it.  I was baffled for a while because I tried that and keep getting null - it turned out that the client/user must be authenticated.  Anyways, this is the solution I was looking for.

Thanks,
jc
