Hi!! I was just reading through some servlet class and came across this code: Principal principal=req.getUserPrincipal();

Here req is an object of the HttpServletRequest class. principal is an object of the java.security.Principal.

Is the getUserPrincipal() method implemented in the HttpServletRequest class? I read the sun techdocs and couldnt find the method listed in the HttpServletRequest class.
