We are facing a problem, when an authenticated client calls a @PermitAll annotated method.
The session context caller name is always ANONYMOUS instead of the authenticated user name. If we change the annotation to @RolesAllow(..) the caller name is correct.

Here's a sample code:

public class A {

  private SessionContext ctx;

  public void methodA() {
    String principleName = ctx.getCallerPrinciple().getName();

Is there a reason, why the caller name is not propagated?
