Running java code as a different user.

We run into quite some issues with security – this is due to our solution. Our task based security solution needs to update files/folder (noderefs) from user X while the system (the workflow task) is currently assigned to user Y.

This construction helped us somewhat;

String test = AuthenticationUtil.runAs(new RunAsWork<String>() {
                public String doWork() throws Exception {

                          …. do some stuff ….

                 } // end public doWork
            }, AuthenticationUtil.getSystemUserName());


But now I also found this blog – this also helps me with current sys user settings.
