    forwarding credentials to flex applications

    ks_flex_user
      I'm new to flex development, and tried to find an answer to a basic question:

      How do you pass credentials which may be established in a j2ee web application via, say, JAAS, to an embedded flex application that is started as an element in one of the screens? For example, if I use a standard jsp page to perform login, and am assigned certain credentials through JAAS, how are these forwarded to an embedded flex element that may be contained in a successful login response page, so that the flex application is able to establish its credentials to get access to any data that it should.

      I'm sure that this is a very common use case, but am probably not searching with the right keywords to be able to get the correct way to do this. Any answers, or pointers to which resources I should look at will be very much appreciated.

      Thanks.
