Linking Roles to Groups

The role of basicUser has been defined for this application, but there is no group of basicUser defined for the Application Server. To map the role that is defined for the application (basicUser) to a group that is defined on the Application Server (user), add a <security-role-mapping> element to the runtime deployment descriptor, sun-web.xml, as shown below (modifications from the original file are in bold). The resulting runtime deployment descriptor is located in tut-install/javaeetutorial5/examples/jaxws/helloservice-basicauth/web/WEB-INF/sun-web.xml.
