> A karaf application that makes use of JAAS for authentication and authorization will
obtain a LoginContext that contains UserPrincipal and RolePrincipal objects (both classes
are inside org.apache.karaf.jaas:org.apache.karaf.jaas.modules).
> If such application needs to distinguish between those two(e.g role based authorization),
will have to depend from org.apache.karaf.jaas:org.apache.karaf.jaas.modules.
> I think that the application needs to be decoupled from Karaf JAAS Modules and this is
why I think that an alternative needs to be provided to the user.
> Such alternative could be the use of a convention (maybe like having a prefix on Roles,
or goruping roles under a Group with a fixed name (jboss approach)). This mechanism could
be implemented by Karaf Login Modules and even better could be pluggable.
