[jboss-user] [JBoss Portal] - Programmatic security

Hi there,

Maybe this is a silly question, however....

I have security roles in my portlet.xml which i check using isuserinrole in my portlet java file:

System.out.println("checking roles in java");
if (request.isUserInRole("Admin")) {
	System.out.println("in Admin");
if (request.isUserInRole("User")) {
	System.out.println("in User");

This prints "in User" when i run the portlet.
If I duplicate that code in a scriptlet in the destination jsp I get no output (ie isuserinrole always returns false).
How is this possible, have i missed something obvious ?

Thanks for any help.
