    EJB 3.0 and SOAP:Headers

      Hello All,

      I am fairly new to EJB3.0 which I am using in my current project.

      I have a stateless ejb which is exposed as a webservice, the GUI application accesses the EJBs through webservice clients.

      In the gui after the user has logged in a SAML Header is created which describes the user that is logged in , basically we are using Managed Name Id Protocol.

      My question is can I somehow pass on the SAML Header attributes (I wish to pass on only two values) to the EJB layer without changing the interface of the ejb.

      Please note I do not have any control over the authentication on the GUI so knowing the possible users is not possible.

      Thank you in advance for any advice I receive.
