      Configure a org.wildfly.security.auth.client.AuthenticationContext separately from the InitialContext and invoke transaction operations with it.

      Description

      Properties props = new Properties();
      props.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, WildFlyInitialContextFactory.class.getName());
      props.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "remote+http://127.0.0.1:8080");
      props.put(Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL, "joe");
      props.put(Context.SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, "joeIsAwesome2013!");
      InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext(props);
      UserTransaction tx = (UserTransaction)ctx.lookup("txn:UserTransaction");
      tx.begin();
      

      The begin() call from this snippet will fail with:

      The InitialContext can successfully be used to invoke EJBs, but operations on transactions fail with an authentication failure.
