JACC is introduced as part of J2EE 1.4. This helps to integrate Pluggable Authorization policy providers to facilitate authorization. This helps in role-based authorization using a JACC compliant security provider. (example: Sun Access Manager, may be Netegrity).

Also refer to Chapter 5 - J2EE Security Architecture for more information on the role of JACC in then J2EE 1.4 platform.

Yes of course - You can use it for your EJB authorization.

Is it possible to propogate credentials from one EJB container to another container from another vendor if the same plugin is used?

Yes ! The JACC provider may suggest their own solution. If not, you may able to do principal delegation between EJBs (running on different containers) using <user-caller-identity> deployment descriptor option.
