Subject Re: How to get the user's current role?
Date Fri, 02 Jun 2006 13:51:53 GMT
Jay,

There is, at least, a J2 specific way: get the Subject for the current
user and iterate over the Subject's principals. You can find plenty of
code examples in the code base that do this. In particular, see the
Profiler component.

HTH,

Randy
