[jboss-user] [JBoss Portal] - Access userPrincipal from Servlet

I am trying to implement a file download function inside a portlet, i.e. a link inside the portlet that will provide the user with a file.

I am using a Servlet to handle the download because I have to pull the file from the database first.

Is there any way to access the portal's userPrincipal from inside the Servlet so that I can make sure the user is authenticated before sending the response?

It seems that both request.getUserPrincipal() and request.getRemoteUser() return null in this setup.

Any thoughts?

Best regards,
