I am using Spring Security in our application

My requirement intially was to allow a user to login to our application using open id.
I was able to do so referring to online tutorials on using open id in Spring sercurity.


and a class as:

I now have a requirement to allow an existing user to "attach" his open id to our application.
meaning that a user that is logged in, will add his open id into the system so that next time he can login using that open id.

So, given that i know the open id url eg: https://www.google.com/accounts/o8/id
How do I prompt user to login to the third party such as google and then return to our app and extract the open id url?

Will roles help me here ?
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
