Subject [Q] Cocoon 2.1 Authentication framework (aka sunRise)
Date Sun, 04 Aug 2002 07:58:07 GMT

I have tried to read through the Auth. documentation and understand how it
relates to the authentication mechanism of the J2EE specification.

I see that it supports roles and session context, but do not understand if
it is tied to the J2EE container's security.

For example when authenticated through the container, a user principal and
role are available in the ServletRequest.
They are also carried over and applied to any J2EE resource like
transactions, datasources, EJBs, JMS, etc. through JNDI.

So, my question:
Is the sunRise framework tied to the J2EE security APIs?
How can my EJBs be aware of the user name and role ?
