    Use of filter to JSF faces servlet


      I have a JSF application which is secured by a custom security framework (similar to SITE MINDER). The security framework after authentication passes the authenticated user name within a in-memory session cookie.

      The entire user information like his group and access restrictions (field / UI compoonent level) resides in the application database

      I have used a filter to JSF Faces servlet to retrieve the user information from the database and storing in session.

      Is this use of filter a good approach?
