InvokerAdaptorService overwrites existing SecurityContext and clears it after invocation

    Details

      Description

      The InvokerAdaptorService always creates a new SecurityContext even if there is already one created by components called earlier in invocation stack. After invoking the desired MBean method the SecurityContext will be cleared with a call to: SecurityActions.clearSecurityContext();
      This leads to several problems:
      In our project we have a secured EJB (annotated with @SecurityDomain) which is calling an MBean Service and a local (secured) EJB. After the invocation of the mbean there is no security context anymore which leads to an IllegalStateException "Security Context has not been set" thrown by RoleBasedAuthorizationInterceptorv2) when we try to call the local EJB.
      Following steps are possible to fix the problem:
      1. call to SecurityActions.getSecurityContext();
      2. if there is currently no SecurityContext create a new one and set it.
      3. if there already is a SecurityContext set, do nothing.
      4. call the mbean method.
      5. only if we created the SecurityContext, we should clear it with SecurityActions.clearSecurityContext(), otherwise, do nothing.
