guys, problem solved. 

the NULL Pointer is because in my eclipse project, i have included the hibernate3.jar and it's seems its crashed with the hibernate3.jar inside the JBoss app server. 

after i have removed the hibernate in my project (as i will use the JBoss), everything is working fine means i can pull the information from the portal user. 

Below is the complete code.

SessionFactory identitySessionFactory = null;
		Session session = null;
		Transaction transaction = null;
			identitySessionFactory = (SessionFactory) new InitialContext().lookup("java:portal/IdentitySessionFactory");
			session = identitySessionFactory.openSession();
			transaction = session.beginTransaction();
			UserModule userModule = (UserModule) new InitialContext().lookup("java:portal/UserModule");
			User temp_user = userModule.findUserByUserName(username);
			authenticateUser = temp_user.validatePassword(password);

		catch (Exception e)
			if (transaction != null)
			if (session != null)
