You have to select the ID (= username) the role,
and maybe some data

username and password:
e.g.: select userid, userrole, ... from usertbl where userid =
$username and password = $password;

Trasform the resultset in the correct xml and then it should work
have a look at the sunrise-user.xsl and the sunrise-user.xml
