David Jencks commented on GERONIMO-4778:
----------------------------------------

Geronimo parts implemented rev 799456.  Leaving open until jetty issue is resolved: before
this we will see a testsuite failure in enterprise-testsuite/sec-tests testForwardRunAsServlet

> Servlet run-as role should apply to a dispatch to another servlet

> The servlet spec doesn't say anything about the effect of a run-as role on the target
servlet of a dispatch.  Some private communication with Ron Monzilla (also on the servlet
eg ml) indicates that the best behavior would be that if a servlet A with run-as role R dispatches
to another servlet B, B's security decisions (is user in role, mostly, for servlets) be based
on role R.
> This will require a small modification in jetty, see https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=285119
