  • Spring business tier and system user?

    I have an application that has a Struts based web GUI and a Spring business tier with Acegi for authentication.

    I want to add some background processes to monitor ongoing activities. Part of the process is likely to include the creation of new data records that will include the name of the creating user - in this case it would be a 'system user'.

    How can I design these background processes so that they are using a recognized/approved 'system user'?

    I've already run a search for 'system user' and can't find any other forum messages.

    So this background user needs to be authenticated? Can't you just programmatically authenticate this? Have you looked as RunAs?

      The process needs a 'user ID' (e.g. 'system') in order to track how entries to tables were originated.

      Where can I find info on 'run as'?
