Servlet making RMI call: Security Exception  RSS feed

I am using JBoss as my Application server and trying to make an RMI call from that. Facing following exception. I googled and understood that its something to do with the Java 2 security issue. I tried to overcome that using the following lines of code in my servlet(RMI client) and RMI server

System.setSecurityManager(new RMISecurityManager());

where i grant AllPermissions. Even then facing the following issue. Is there some JBoss configuration which needs to be changed to get this working?

Help Appreciated.

java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.net.SocketPermission connect,resolve)
at java.security.AccessControlContext.checkPermission(AccessControlContext.java :264)
at java.security.AccessController.checkPermission(AccessController.java:427)
at java.lang.SecurityManager.checkPermission(SecurityManager.java:532)
Author and all-around good cowpoke

JBoss is ignoring your System property and starting up with its own security manager. Somewhere in the startup code there is presumably something that sets a security policy.

I don't know about JBoss, but in Tomcat's catalina.bat we find:

set SECURITY_POLICY_FILE=%CATALINA_BASE%\conf\catalina.policy

and in the java command line:
