This is the right place to ask this question.

Geronimo lets you set up many security realms at once.  When you connect from a remote client to call ejbs, there's no easy way to predict which application's ejb or which ejb you want to call.  So you have to specify how you want to log in when you connect.

We could allow specifying a default security realm for all of openejb so if you don't specify a realm we use the default.

Hi All,

I have a very simple ejb deployed on geronimo2.2.1. This ejb is secured by a security realm(Database(SQL) realm). When I call this ejb from a standalone java client, it restricts me from accessing it without authentication.

But when I provide this principal and credentials then also it restricts me from calling this ejb.
When I additionally provide realmName then it enables me to call this ejb.

My question is why do we need to provide the security realm name in the client?

I am sorry if this is not the right place to ask such questions.
