    Hi
    I'm trying to work out a users priveleges ( - perhaps local group) from within a Java application
    (running on NT).
    I know the System Class provides user.name but this isnt sufficient. I have had a very quick
    look at JAAS but this seems overkill for what I want to do. Is JAAS the only way to do it
    or has someone got another idea ?
    If JAAS is the way to do it any pointers on what I need to do ?

    Ta for any help
    Ewan
