Frank Nimphius talks about displaying the authenticated username in ADF UIX using EL.

I just found Franks post on This is an excellent short article about how to display or know the J2EE authenticated application user. This can be very useful in cases where content should only be displayed per authenicated user. This builds on Franks previous post that showed how to use the isUserInRole() method of the HTTP servlet request object. This new post shows how to do the same thing but this time using the getRemoteUser() method of the HTTP servlet request object.
