Strategy for delegation? or run query as user?

Question asked by steve.tekell on Mar 14, 2008
I have the scenario where another web app wants to work with Alfresco on behalf of another user.

User1 -> WebApp1 -> Alfresco

The most common case for me is where WebApp1 wants to query Alfresco, but it should only return results that User1 has access too.
How do people do this with Alfresco Web Services?

It's one of the few times that I wished I had EJBs, because I know this kind of delegation just works.
Is there a general WS strategy that Alfresco supports that I should look into?

Is there anything just for the query results case?  Where an admin using Alfresco Web Services can limit it results to another user?

thanks,

Steve
