This request object contains nothing - no remoteUser details or any other attributes.
I tried to test this by creating a sample jsp page and passing the servlet request object to retrieve the remoteUser. I am able to look up the remoteUser name in this case. Could someone help me retrieve the request object right and retrieve the remoteUser name eventually?
