  Once more, could you send those mails to the tomcat mailing-list and not 
directly to me ? It helps me to sort my mails and it can profit to more 
people ...

  How do you check that the roles shows up in the principal ? Do you have an 
authentication or an authorization problem ? What implementation of Principal 
are you using ? Could you send the relevant java code ?

  Sorry that I'm not able to help you more right now ...
