We propagate to EJB the principal so we should have it working without a
lot - never said "no" - of effort for all synchronous cases. I'm pretty
sure it will be broken for the async - but natural user - flow (@Suspended
or plain AsyncContext, EE Concurrency utilities will not work for servlet
case - can need a fix - but would if called from an EJB IIRC) but this
seems out of the spec too, no?
You are right the Jacc integration can need a few more love to match the
spec but we own this code and have the principal at that moment so i'm sure
we can make it running, even without being jwt specific which can benefit
all the alternative solutions user base.
