thanx. You did answer the question. But I didn´t know how to realize what
you suggested for the embedded version of Tomcat into JBoss. I didn´t even
find the server.xml.
Any idea about it?
Best regards

Hmm, I could swear I've read and answered this exact message, maybe a few
weeks ago.  Or maybe I'm dreaming.  Anyways, you need a custom Realm
implementation, probably a simple extension of one of the existing Realms
(see the Realm how-to and server.xml for discussion and examples).  This
realm will create your custom principal object.
