Thanks for the reply... Here are some more specifics. I am working with Geronimo 1.1.1 and attempting to add role-based security to DayTrader (with the help of Surya Duggirala). He has added the necessary security tags to the web.xml and ejb-jar.xml and I am simply trying to figure out the deployment plans for Geronimo.

Thus far I have done the following...

Added the security realm to the <web-app> portion of the deployment plan to secure a URL in the web archive.

I have also added the following to the <openejb-jar> portion of the plan to secure one of the session EJBs.

        <default-principal realm-name="daytrader-realm">
          <principal name="anonymous" class="org.apache.geronimo.security.realm.providers.GeronimoUserPrincipal"/>
          <role role-name="grp1">
            <realm realm-name="daytrader-realm">
              <principal name="group1" class=" org.apache.geronimo.security.realm.providers.GeronimoGroupPrincipal"/>

When I access the secured URL, I am asked to provide my credentials as expected. So, that appears to be working correctly. However, I'm not really sure how to verify that my method level permissions on the secured Session bean are being respected.

I can access the session bean via a non-secured URL that bypasses the security configuration in the war. If the security configuration for my ejb was being used, I would expect some form of exception to be thrown when I try to access it via my non-secured URL (since I have not provided my credentials), but I do not. This leads me to believe that I'm missing something.

Any thoughts?

Thanks again...

The role>> permission mapping is specified in the spec dd or via

The part in the geronimo plan is a principal<< role mapping which
works the same way for wars and ejb jars.

I don't know if there are easy to find examples.  If this doesn't
clear it up can you ask a more specific question?
